Kudos to my son Nate this week; his first major project as student body president of his high school is getting local attention. The publisher of our local newspaper posted a blog about Nate: http://tinyurl.com/565zso.
I’ve said it before, but you need to keep your eyes on Nate. Here is a young leader with a call on his life bigger than most people I know many years older. I wish I had understood life and leadership as well as he does at his age. You can read Nate’s personal blog for more information about him. (Moons from Burma)
The fact is that I have 2 incredible boys you should watch to soar in years to come; both are very different. Nate, the younger, is more organizationally driven. He is so self-motivated and structured that I really just try not to get in his way. Jeremy, the older one, is more relationally driven. He requires more structure and honestly more attention, but he loves people deeply and doesn’t really feel complete unless there are people activities occupying his time. I describe their difference like this; if I wanted a specific task accomplished I would seek Nate’s input. If I wanted someone to visit the hospital or to build a relationship with someone quickly I would send Jeremy.
