What will you do with the next 12 hours? It’s half your day… How about the next 12 days? That’s almost two weeks.

What do you have planned in the next 12 weeks? Some people call it a quarter… Who will you become in the coming year?

What can you accomplish in the next 12 years? Surely, you can do almost anything given just over a decade!

Make the most of your Next Twelve!


“Reality check: There is a surprisingly small difference between ordinary and extraordinary… Just a little bit extra. This gap can be narrowed daily by doing a few small things consistently.”

– John Maxwell


Welcome! This blog is about living life to the fullest, embracing the burdens God has placed on your heart, and helping others to do the same. As a would-be world changer and budding young professional, I (Jer) started NexTwelve.com to explore my passions – leadership, encouragement, and adding value to other people – and to try and maximize the impact of my life by adding value to yours! I also convinced my mentor, author and speaker Dr. Steve Gerali to join in the fray.

Our goal is to create insightful, relevant content on Leadership, Mentorship, and Intentional Living that you can put to work in your own life. We currently post about twice a month, and we try to keep each post clear, actionable, and concise. If you find a particular post helpful or inspiring, please share it with others. You bring your uniqueness to the blend too, so please don’t hesitate to introduce yourself and share your thoughts!

Our hope is that, together, we’ll learn to live with greater impact. Leading an impactful life is not about being special, famous, or wealthy. Neither is impact something that is suddenly discovered. Instead, it’s about learning to live intentionally. It’s something anyone is capable of doing. A life of impact is cultivated – step-by-step, day-by-day. Thus the importance of your ‘Next Twelve.’

If we can all learn to live more intentionally, we can have a greater positive impact on our families, communities, nations, and world. We can live stories worth telling!
