I’m so sleepy

Actually, I’m completely exhausted.  Today we had a very successful class.  We had 28 dentists sitting in one room to learn more about dental implants.  I busted my arse yesterday to get the room in order.  When I left, I was completely satisfied.  I am very proud of what we accomplished.

A few years ago, a man named John Morgan spoke at my church.  He was a lead pastor at a church, but he decided to step down because he realized that he is a much better #2 than he is a #1.  That message has stuck with me throughout the good times and the bad times.  It takes a person who really knows him or herself to step down from a position like that to be a youth pastor.

I know something about myself.  In general, I am not a good #2.  I would like to be.  I try to be.  But I don’t do all that well in support roles.  I am only really good in the #2 role behind someone who is a very strong #1.  I don’t know if it is a strength or weakness knowing this.

Anyway.  I’ve found someone that I am good at supporting.  I actually enjoy supporting him.  I can see working with him, doing life for a long time.  We seem to balance one another pretty well.  He lets me rant and rave if necessary…but he also knows when to cut me off.  And I let him.  Without being ticked off.  Yeah.   I am in uncharted territory.  Now we just need to get that business making money…

Thanks for reading.  Until next time…
