  • Five Minutes to Thrive: GRIT

    I‘m not an abrasives expert, but I know that coarse sandpaper (“grit range” 60-80) is good for rapidly removing large amounts of material, while finer grits (320+) are used for polishing and finishing work. Whether attempting to turn a block of wood into a race car, or tackle a major life project, I know I’m going to need grit. When I face adversity or undertake something that is emotionally, psychologically, or spiritually taxing; I have come to find I also need grit to smooth out my adjustment to whatever scenario comes my way.

  • Five Minutes to Thrive: Recharge Your Battery

    At what point do you look at your battery on your cell phone & think, “I need to plug my phone into the charger?” Is it 60%, 50%, or do you allow it to drain completely before recharging?

What is going to happen if my phone dies? Nothing really – except that I might miss the latest BookFace stories, or Tok Tik trends.

  • Team Minot 2019: Year in review

    As we move into 2020, we can’t help but to look back on all the amazing things that Team Minot has accomplished this past year. From numerous exercises, countless distinguished visitors, inspections and base improvements, our Airmen came together to complete the mission day in and day out, conducting combat sorties and operations to standing watch at missile fields 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. For years Minot Air Force Base has stood and stands as the most strategic Air Force base. With that being said, it’s no wonder why 266 days out of 2019, Team Minot had distinguished visitors with boots on the ground seeing what makes Minot the home of the Global Striker.

    You may have a friend or have personally suffered from insomnia. At night, many folks lay down in bed and close their eyes, and one million tangentially-related thoughts pop up, one after the other, each screaming for attention.
