1. Interruptions. “In the interruption, in the waiting, do you, like me, sometimes forget that God is fully at work? Do you forget that, just like we have to wait for bread to rise in order to have an outcome that is useful, God uses the instrument of time to bring things to fruition?”
2.Social Proofs. “When people are trying to reason through their choices, they will often say, ‘Well, so-and-so is doing this, and I like them a lot, so why are you being difficult and telling me it’s a bad idea?'”
3. Items to Ponder: Misclassification of Licensees vs. Franchisees. “A licensing agreement means that people can operate and have ‘branch’ differences.

4.Items to Ponder: Misclassification of Independent Contractors vs. Employees. “It boils down to being really, really sure – without adding or subtracting anything or playing word games, that you’re doing the right thing in this area and that a common sense test could be passed.”
