October 2017

Greetings again, from Norman Creek Trail. Welcome to the October 2017 edition of Executive Action: Urgent Information for Leaders and their Trusted Strategic Advisors. This month’s edition has the potential to change your life, a statement I make with a real sense of gravity for you.

WARNING: New, Life-Changing, Feature - The Bad News Eradicator, which will help you learn how to begin to mitigate, preempt and hopefully eliminate bad news, which is mostly caused by the careless use of negative language, phrases and examples.

Stop using negative language and your life will change as will the lives of others. They will notice, eventually and talk about it. Positive language is the most important ingredient of leadership.

You Can’t Make This Stuff Up, An Occasional Feature - Good News: In Georgia you can’t go to jail for flipping your pastor the bird. Read More Below.

See you next month,

The Bad News Eradicator


The Bad News Eradicator, a continuing Executive Action feature will show you how to avoid noncommunication, debates, arguments, anger and contention in your speaking and writing. One of the most powerful strategies I teach is the eradication of negative language, phrases and statements.


You Can't Make This Stuff Up!

Good News: In Georgia you can’t go to jail for flipping your pastor the bird


During a church service the pastor at the 12Stone Church in Flowery Branch, GA made some complimentary remarks about the work of teachers and asked these individuals to be recognized. Pastor Jason Berry asked any teachers in the present stand and be recognized. Congregation member David Justin Freeman, an advocate of homeschooling, in the back of the church rose with the others, extended his hand toward the preacher and gave him the bird, the proverbial erect middle finger.

Eventually he was cited for disorderly conduct, was tried and found guilty by a jury.

His case was appealed and unanimously overturned by the Supreme Court of Georgia (www.gasupreme.us/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/s17a1040.pdf) who said, “Freeman could not be found guilty under the disorderly conduct statute, Justice Harold Melton wrote, “because there is no showing here that Freeman’s act of silently raising his middle finger from the back of church during the service constituted ‘fighting words’ or a ‘true threat’ that would amount to a tumultuous act” which is required under the Georgia statue. So, feel free to visit a Georgia church anytime, and if the pastor says something you don’t like, you’re free to make any hand gestures you like.

You just can’t make this stuff up.
