099: Jethro Jones: No Excuse Stewardship

Stewardship is Jethro’s core message, as I heard—of his community, especially children in it, his country, and the natural world we share. This world is a beautiful, abundant gift we could wreck if we don’t steward it as we know we can.

He cares about being an effective steward—not just talk but action. Wait until you hear this Alaskan’s commitment to live by this value.

WARNING: if you’re full of making excuses why you can’t act, Jethro’s no-complaining, in-service-to-others personal commitment will belie any bogus, self-serving ones. If you came here for more excuses or to reinforce complacency, you won’t like Jethro’s dedication and commitment.

We start on education. Jethro is a school principal active beyond his own school with a national audience. He describes how school systems propagandize, which we can and must channel with intent based on our values, not just let happen.

We’ve been friends since I did his podcast a year ago. He contacted me to do this show because of his personal and passionate challenge. People like Jethro taking initiative to lead himself and others is why I started this podcast. I hope you take initiative in your life as he did in his. I’d love to hear from you too.
