[leaders’ bootcamp: epic fail… or not? part 2]

Zee Gimon

I am Zee. I call myself the Observer because that's what I find myself doing most of the time - observe life and people around me. My blog is a Pensieve, similar to that of Dumbledore, used to keep the thoughts and random ideas that visit my brain.

  • Zee: I wanted to comment on two things you wrote about…things I agree wholeheartedly with. The first one: Never assume. Assumption is asking for trouble. I hate to even think how many times I assumed something and it was wrong and I paid dearly for it. The second is Follow the Rules. We just "assume" that all rules are bad. But perhaps we need to consider that some rules are good for us-they are there for our good. Following religious rules legalistically is, of course, not good but following God's rules can only work out for our best. My lesson: hold things loosely. Not always will things go as planned. Go with the flow and allow God to do His thing.
    My recent post Worry-Free Week

    • hehe, i've read this first thing in the morning and my eyesight was obviously not clear 'nuff at first. i've read "things I disagree wholeheartedly with" and thought "wow, what did i write that Bill wholeheartedly disagrees with me?"… i've read the phrase a couple more times and saw that it was "agree," not "disagree" 🙂 *whew!*

      yep. we got used to the fact that rules are mostly used to control us as kids and therefore when we grow up we don't want to deal with them at all. however, there is a reason why our parents tell us not to play with the fire or not stick our hands into the outlets.

      thanks for feedback, Bill! 🙂

      • Glad your eyesight cleared up Zee! I would hate to have the wrath of Zee coming down on me. 😀 Hope you have a great day.

        • haha, well, i was afraid of the same – that i wrote something that dumb that you decided to say that you completely disagree.

          i did have a great day. witnessed a wonderful and awesome display of cloud formations. i have never in my life seen such storm clouds forming so fast and furious. neither did most of my colleagues. from 15th floor, we had an awesome view of the city… ah, i love thunderstorms!

  • Love both of these posts. Thank you for sharing the experience!

    My lesson: God will meet you right where you are (even when you go down the wrong path). Watch for Him. Once He shows up, follow Him relentlessly.
    My recent post Called to Sacrifice

    • amen! that's a good lesson to learn, Dusty, and indeed, He was there with us, even though we went the wrong way. thanks for stopping by.

  • Glad you are feeling better kiddo.

    I think the biggest lesson that I am learning was Bill's #3, which is go with the flow and allow God to work.
