The Question(s) Great Lives Bring Us

Great lives do not push agendas, rather they pull us in with questions for our awareness to how things are and how we can we can make the world a better place.

Jobs asked if we were settling for good when incredible was nearby.

Godin is asking if we are accepting the status quo or challenging it.

Ramsey is asking if we are living like everyone else or no one else.

Rick Warren is questioning our purpose or lack thereof.

What are you giving us to think about?
