acknowledgments

4 some conversations

The best things we hope for ourselves, others, and our world won’t just happen.

We have to work for them.

‘And stories are all about conflict.  What lies between a person and what that person wants is work.’*

Hoping good things will happen is an event-led view of the future.

Hoping for things through hard work is a choice-led perspective.

The bad news is, we can only do it with others.

The good news is, we can only do it with others.

Like in the acknowledgements at the end of a book when the author lists all the people who have helped get them to publishing.

So many stories waiting to be written.

(*From Donald Miller’s Scary Close.)
