Matthew 4:18-20. That’s where the name of my company comes from:
While walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon (who is called Peter) and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. And he said to them, “Follow me and I wil make you fishers of men.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him.
To the first followers of Jesus, nets represented not only safety but also the only way of life they’d ever known. Yet in order for them to change the world, and to experience change in their own world, they had to make a choice: hold tight to the safe, or let go and commit to the new.
Life poses this same choice, and whispers this same call, every day. The new demands the courage to cut ourselves free of the old because nets will ensnare, trap, and trip.
You were never meant to be safe. You were meant to live fully and freely in a world full of change and possibility.
I created NO NET Solutions to both follow and share the strategies and messages that have blessed me more than I deserve: an approach to leadership that respects and unleashes the creativity of everyone involved, tried and true methods of developing others that are far older than you may realize, and a model of parenting that has completely transformed every moment I spend with my children and wife.
Drop your net. Change your world.
