Our whole pastoral team is having an amazing time together at Catalyst 2012 in Dallas, Texas.  Following are some one-line pullouts from our time here so far:

Andy Stanley:
'The more successful you are, the less accessible you become.'

'Do for one what you wish you could do for everyone.'

'When you decide to do for one, you often end up doing for more than just one.'

'Don't be fair; be engaged.'

'Go deep rather than wide.
Go long-term rather than short-term.
Go time, not just money.'

John Maxwell on leadership:
To be a better leader, ask yourself these five questions ...
- What is the greatest lesson I've ever learned?
- What am I learning now?
- How has failure shaped my life?
- Who do you know that I should know?
- What have you done that I should do?
- What have you read that I should read?
- How can I add value to you?'

How to get personal success in life:
- Know your purpose in life
- Intentionally add value to people every day
- In your abilities, work on your strengths, not your weaknesses
- Follow the rule of '5' (every day do 5 things that will help you accomplish your purpose in life)
- Trust God every day with your lunch

One more day of awesomeness at Catalyst tomorrow before flying home.

And be blessed.
