How Do You Measure the 525,600 Minutes in a Year?

Most of us in the West are not farmers. The 525,600 minutes in a year are not measured by plowing, planting, waiting, and harvesting. But our seasons of life, the time we invest in ourselves, personally or at work, very much is defined by these activities. If you’re in a season of growth, you may not…

Title and Rank Are Meaningless

Have you ever been in a situation where you felt used because of your professional credentials? Maybe you’ve felt dismissed because of your limited resume.

Good Leaders Get the Job Done. Great Leaders Live On.

Have you ever had an incredible leader you wanted to emulate? What was different about this person that made you want to follow? Good leaders get the job done. But great leaders live on. You don’t need to look too far to find this in action. When we read about Jesus, all the good he…

“Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.” –Proverbs 15:22

Wise Counsel Illuminates Blind Spots

The pressure is real to move quickly, be decisive and deliver answers fast. So it’s easy to feel compelled to take action before we’ve done our due diligence. Running new ideas and solutions by others takes time, and that time can be costly, right? The trouble is we can actually slow ourselves down by going…

3 Keys to Winning Respect

“How Do I Center My Ambition on Christ?”

Discerning the voice of God from one’s own ambition is a challenge. However, it doesn’t need to be. Grabbing hold of God’s will for your life is neither a mystical nor aimless pursuit. Ambition, when the true motives behind it are checked against selfishness, is a godly pursuit. Humans were given the mandate to be…

Long-Lasting Success Is Up to You

Long-Lasting Success Is Up to You

Long-lasting success is not a result of pedigree or family name. Not alma matter, or even lack thereof. Name recognition or who you know might give you a foot in the door, but making something useful of your career is up to you. You’ve got to do the hard things. Show up. Study hard. Work…

“Why Don’t My Ideas Take Flight?”

Extraordinary ideas and creative solutions will never take off with perfection at the helm. Why? Perfection is the enemy of great. Seeking to do things perfectly is a surefire way to hold yourself back from being innovative in ways that can lead to incredible results. For many of us, however, seeking perfection becomes the goal…

Success Is Only ‘Part’ of the Story

Success Is Only ‘Part’ of the Story

If your origin story seems small or even wrought with shame, don’t write it off. The key to sustained growth is not in abandoning your roots. When achieved, success is only part of your story.

One Process That Should Never Be Standardized

There is no scope creep when it comes to God’s plan for you. He’s the one who called you, and He’s the one who’s going to see you through. Paul closes his first letter to the church in the city now known as Thessaloniki with an exhortation. “May God himself […] sanctify you through and…

When you feel threatened, don't waste the oxygen.

Save the Oxygen and Follow Christ

Sometimes it’s easier to see a speck of sawdust in someone else’s eye than it is to see the plank in your own (Matthew 7:3). It’s human nature. When you feel threatened by the perceived success of a coworker or the fear of corrective action from a supervisor, warranted or not, it is easier to…

Share the Joy of Faith, Not the Methods

Many of us may feel pressure to perform in the workplace, in relationships, and even in our spiritual lives. But faith is not performance driven. When it comes to living out your faith, to integrating it into all of life, don’t worry about performing. You don’t need to be on display. There is no yearly…

Be Relevant

Is Jesus Relevant Anymore?

When our words or actions distract and get in the way of people who need Christ’s message of hope and freedom, we need to check ourselves. We need to practice self-awareness so we can understand how we come across to others and make appropriate adjustments. This is a key part of becoming more spiritually mature.…

Philippians 3:12

Spiritual Maturity Requires No Resume

Paul’s writing in the New Testament pulls no punches. And his brutal honesty about his own shortcomings and colored past serve as encouragement for us all. We DON’T need to have it all together to be effective in building the Kingdom of God. A well-written resume proves nothing more definitively than one’s ability to write…

Loving God with Everything You’ve Got!
