People are the Prize

Today’s Word is Example


For the next 30 days, I’m going to post a short video that focuses on a word (or phrase) of the day. Most will be about preventing violence, some on leadership, a few on strategy, but all about personal growth.

It comes from a group of college students assigned a class exercise in which they have to make some hard and quick decisions about life and death. The results are surprising, encouraging, and helps to show us how example is important to character.

  1. Great message, Don! I need to stop pointing at everyone else saying,”something needs to be done about this!” I needed the reminder to lead instead of expecting everyone else to do it for me. It’s my responsibility. Thanks for the “boot-in-the-butt”.
