“Editing your silo” is about gravitating to your own belief system compatible information, instead of challenging your believe system. Stated another way, it is tuning your thoughts and words to arguing your perspective as opposed to drilling down to why you, and others, believe what they believe. Are you editing your silo? If you focus more on the minutia of the social strata of who and why someone has a particular perspective, instead of trying to understand the perspective itself, you are probably editing your silo. “All my friends believe this”, “I am only friends with others who believe like me”, or “I believe this, therefore I am right”.
Leadership vs. Supervision As reprinted from http://MetaOpsMagazine.com
LIVONIA, Mich., June 13, 2013 — Making leaders, not rulers
Every manager maintains a balance of supervisory and leadership skills. This balance is impacted by the personality of the manager and the situation in which they are operating. These skill sets complement each other in a healthy work environment, but are in conflict in an unhealthy one.
Leadership and supervision are concepts best defined by the source of their authority to act, or their power source. A supervisor gets his or her authority, or power, from the position power provided by the organization. This is a top-down flow of power. Supervisors manage from a command-and-control paradigm that is rooted in the ongoing inspection of performance.
For the most part, all of us have a robust fear of failure. We are good at counting the cost of trying and failing. We are also pretty much aware of what we don’t want to lose. The result is that we miss opportunities due to not taking the risk of possible failure.
My dad has been gone from this life for 6 years. Still, not a day goes by that I don’t think about him. These thoughts usually come by way of considering how he would handle a situation or how he would enjoy hearing a certain piece of news.
Notes to Licensed Installers
AN ECM is simply a computer that operates in a network in your vehicle. ECM’s only function correctly when they are integrated into your vehicle’s network security and operating system. As a result there are many problems associated with ECM repair and replacement that can only be seen or diagnosed with the ECM installed in your vehicle’s network and using an OEM specific scan tool.
Electronic repairs, program fixes and/or updates, calibrations, resets, configurations etc. are already done to our PC’s, Cell Phones, Game systems and many other electronic and computer driven systems almost exclusively by internet connection either wired or wireless.
The challenges facing this type service in the automotive repair world are the wide ranges of vehicles and vehicle systems differences by manufacturer and even models. It is extremely challenging for a repair shop to be equipped with specific diagnostic equipment, knowledge, and access to all the information to make an electronic repair to a vehicle in shop. Also, at this time, each car manufacturer requires a different type of interface “scan tool” with access to the manufacturer’s service information and calibration files for the shop to properly diagnose and repair electronic faults or identify mechanical/electrical “hard faults” properly.
Why does God bless someone? What keeps the blessings coming?
Do you recall the parable of the talents (Matthew 25)? God works the same way. God blesses us so that we will pass the blessing on, not so that we may be enriched. Whatever God has given you, if you don’t use it for his work and Glory, he will take it away to give to someone else that will. He is not interested in “filling your warehouses” (Luke 12).
The point is this. It is not about us, but God. Not about what we want, but what God wants. It’s not about our desires, but God’s will.
Lion of Judah:
If you listen you can hear the Lion roar anytime the evil one attacks one of the Children of God. It is the Lion telling the evil one “This one is mine. You can’t have him”.
