“Genius is no more than childhood recaptured at will.”

– Charles Baudelaire, French poet and translator

I just did a Google search for the top ten most influential people of all time. Guess who was number one on this list: Jesus. Others included Muhammad, Gandhi, Buddha, Confucius, and of course, Einstein.

In the book Jesus CEO (written in 1992), Lauri Beth Jones identifies over 80 key characteristics of how Jesus lived his life. One quality I particularly like was his ability to be playful and share his sense of humor, spontaneity, and joy. His genius helped others lower their defenses and flock to be with him.


I strongly encourage you to pick up a copy of Jones’ book and review at least one of Jesus’ qualities each day.

Each section will only take about 3 minutes to read but may take quite a bit longer to reflect and act upon. I assure you, it will be worth it.
