Success is in the Details

Candle by Blu Spirit

Step by step, stone by stone and brick by brick.  (Whitney Houston lyrics)

Our media, fast paced culture tends to confuse this reality with their non-stop hype.  The detailed work to produce an extraordinary show is what we need to focus on, not just the show.

The victory is in the details, in the step by step.  Media has us focusing on the “grandness” and being seduced by this illusion.  Yet the true work is in the ordinary, mundane details and completing tasks step by step.

Emotions snatch us up and we get caught in the wave of mass emotion.  Yet strategic planning is needed for you, your family, your career, and your goals.  Identifying and completing the step by step tasks is the only way to victory.
Daily observe the details of your present pathway.  Understand the flow that constantly changes.

We are reconstructing and building to create sustainable lives.

It Is That Simple And That Complex At The Same Time.

Guidance from Our Elder - Dr. Maya Angelou


Because we have forgotten our ancestors, our children no longer give us honor.


Vicissitudes” Underwater sculpture in Grenada in honor of African ...

Because we have lost the path our ancestors cleared, kneeling in perilous undergrowth, our children cannot find their way.
Because we have banished the God of our ancestors, our children cannot pray.
Because the old wails of our ancestors have faded beyond our hearing, our children cannot hear us crying.

Slave being tortured (1839)

Because we have abandoned our wisdom of mothering and fathering, our befuddled children give birth to children they neither want nor understand.

Because their ancestors lived on isolated islands, the Gullah are considered to have retained more of their African roots and traditions than any group in America.

Because we have forgotten how to love, the adversary is within our gates, and holds us up to the mirror of the world, shouting, “Regard the loveless.”
Therefore, we pledge to bind ourselves again to one another,
Ø  To embrace our lowliest,
Ø  To keep company with our loneliest
Ø  To educate our illiterate
Ø  To feed our starving
Ø  To clothe our ragged,
Ø  To do all good things, knowing that we are more than keepers of our brothers and sisters.  We are our brothers and sisters.
In honor of those who toiled and implored God with golden tongues, and in gratitude to the same God who brought us out of hopeless desolation.

We make this pledge.
 Dr. Maya Angelou
