About

My name is Ivan Bickett. And I’m here because I want to show people there is a better way.  A better way of business. A better way to be married. A better way to raise our kids. A better way to do life.

I have been happily married to my beautiful bride, Skye, for five years now and our son, Alexander will be two at the end of August. We live in Northeast Atlanta. I’m formally trained as an accountant, but have held a wide variety positions throughout the years.

I started this blog because I want to show people how they can change and make their lives better. As Donald Miller says in his book a Million Miles in a Thousand Years, “God gave us a legal pad and a pen and said ‘Write your story’.” (paraphrased) I love this picture.

For years I believed my life had been written, and I was NOT too pleased with the script. It has taken time, but I am coming to realize that Donald is right. God has provided us certain skills, abilities, strengths, and weaknesses and He says to us, “Write your story”.

This is my attempt to show everyone that there is a better way for us to write our stories.

    Whoah. Awesome description of your purpose for the blog. This is bad. I find I keep getting distracted by the blog instead of doing work today. It’s obvious I would rather be reading and getting inspired and having new thoughts, ideas and visions rather than drawing a site plan. Anyway, I see you have mentioned this book by Donald Miller a few times now and I intend to check it out for my next book.

    This, “God has provided us certain skills, abilities, strengths, and weaknesses and He says to us, ‘Write your story’,” is what has stood out to me the most in your purpose description and I am going to claim it as truth today.

      YES! Glad I’m not the only one having that issue today! Although I’m not devouring my site, I keep going to others’ and listening to podcasts and reading / commenting.

      Another GREAT SITE for you is The Rise to the Top by David Siteman Garland. Here it is: http://www.therisetothetop.com/ I LOVE this site!

      Shoot me your address in a email and I’ll put a copy of the book in the mail for you. It’s THAT important that you read it.
