Good morning Col Burroughs and Posse. We've made it to Thursday.
Waiting to hear from my doctor about some test results she isn't going to be happy with...we will see what the next steps are. Fortunately, none of this is fatal, LOL
I teach resiliency and mind-body skills. What I've found is that when I attach the skill to a visual image, people tend to remember it much better and longer. That's true for both adults and children; the skills I make up visual names for they seem to remember and use...wave breath, painting rainbows, starfish breathing...all of these have other names but none of clients seem to be able to remember them.
When I counseled ESOL students, I used lots of pictures because many of my students had limited literacy skills in any language and I wanted to make sure I could get the point across correctly.
And my own name is one of those "visual images" for most Americans; they recognize Charlie Brown and seem to have little trouble recalling my name.

I'm not the average person Charlie, I spent 50 years of my life with the Federal government, military, and law enforcement. I have to admit though, I had to repeat myself several times when giving a briefing.

I expect that you have had to make many difficult choices in your life this far. No doubt you put sought advice and put significant thought into those decision choices. I expect you may well have visualized in your mind’s eye the impact of your decisions. I pray that you and I seek the LORD’s will whenever we make decisions which impact others. ‘I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.’ [Psalm 32:8 ESV] my sister-in-Christ Lt Col Charlie Brown.

LORD I lift the wise leaders in government, business, & industry; managers, engineers and designers; and anybody else faced with significant decisions which impact the lives of many to YOU. I pray for insight, discernment and motivation to evaluate second and third order effects of the decision choices. 'For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.’ [Luke 14:28-30 ESV]
I pray that YOU open the windows of heaven for the homeless families, homeless veterans, widows, widowers, street children and each other person who is in desperate need of sustenance, safe place to live, love and respect. I pray that YOU pour out a large measure of love for each one and YOU motivate people to show respect by demonstration of action to each individual in desperate need. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality. [Romans 12:10-13 ESV]
I pray for guidance, discernment and a quest to learn for parents, guardians, and others devoted to caring for children and seeking the best for each child. LORD I pray that YOU guide the minds of each one in terms of how best to educate their children – home school, private school or public school. I pray that YOU open the best door for each one and close all others. ‘Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.’ Matthew 7:7-8 ESV]
As far as those foolish leaders in government, business, & industry; managers, engineers and designers who are conceited, seeking their own glory, and/or corrupt in principles and actions, I pray YOU thwart their plans. If their motivation is for evil, I pray that the planned evil will fall on their own heads. ‘And his mercy is for those who fear him from generation to generation. He has shown strength with his arm; he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts; he has brought down the mighty from their thrones and exalted those of humble estate; he has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent away empty.’ [Luke 1:50-53 ESV]
I pray that you and your family members sleep well Wednesday night and will awake refreshed and healthy on Thursday morning.
By the power and authority of the Name above all names, Jesus the Christ.

Absolutely brother. Have a great day MSgt Dave Hoffman...

“Getting a visual of any decision that affects other is so important in today’s environment when it comes to leader organization and people. Getting the whole picture can lead to better accomplishments…

‘Visualize your success then take action.’ – Unknown Author

May you always have the ability to put your dreams, decisions, and goals into a visual format, so you can actually see what they’ll look like moving forward and how they will affect your organization and people; may your mind, body, and soul be opened to grace, goodness, peace, forgiveness, and a continued bountiful life of purpose; and keep your family safe, secure, happy, and healthy. Don’t use death by PowerPoint to get your visualization across to others. Getting a visual of your dream is important to your actions, purpose, and your well-being.” – COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Don’t forget to join SSG Derrick Iozzio for another great night of "Peer-to-Peer" support. WFL - Where "Sharing is Caring!" Tonight, he’ll discus “Dreams!”

Good “Thursday!” Morning “Burroughs’ Posse Leader from the quickly warming skies of SW Florida, where it is 75° headed up to about 88° this afternoon... SW winds pushing up the temps from the Tropics... Expected to get up into the 90's by this weekend... Yikes! Working my IT job today, lots to do... I'll be on and off RP most of the day...

It is: “Visual Day!” Visual is the best way to learn in my view. How about yours?

MY PERSONAL QUOTE:
"I am a visual person... I think visually, I think in visual steps to complete a task. Where others may stumble and fail to see the way, I see the way almost immediately. That is my way to succeed in any endeavor." - Kerry F. Harkins March 25, 2021

"Losers visualize the penalties of failure. Winners visualize the rewards of success.” - Unknown

"I believe that visualization is one of the most powerful means of achieving personal goals.” - Harvey Mackay

“Visualizing information can give us a very quick solution to problems. We can get clarity or the answer to a simple problem very quickly.” David McCandless

“The key to effective visualization is to create the most detailed, clear and vivid a picture to focus on as possible. The more vivid the visualization, the more likely, and quickly, you are to begin attracting the things that help you achieve what you want to get done.” George St-Pierre

“Look at things not as they are but as they can be. Visualization adds value to everything. A bigger thinker always visualizes what can be done in the future. He isn’t stuck with the present.” - David Schwarts

Know this:

“What leaders can visualize they can make happen. When making hard decisions visualize and internalize the impact of your decision on your people and the team.” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
