Just a quick note to address the reason for my absence in recent weeks. It’s because I’m working on a new e-book tentatively titled “X Tips for Building Healthier Small Groups and Communities.” There’s an X because I don’t know exactly how many tips there will be yet. Also, the title is just tentative as mentioned. After I finish it, I will be working on finalizing the title so it’s more “market-y.”
I’m not exactly sure how long it will take me because I’ve been backing off a bit on writing and working on the blog a bit lately. A recent book I read (Making Room For Life) encouraged me to adjust my lifestyle out of a workaholic-type structure to a healthier structure. More specifically, I’ve started to try and follow the Hebrew day schedule. Without getting too specific, it basically relegates productivity time to the day time and relaxing and relationships to dinner time and beyond. Of course, it also employs a Sabbath day rest as well.
Needless to say, if you’re not working all the time, you get less work done. But, you’re healthier, which is the point. I’ve been doing it for a couple months now and I can say that it definitely works better. I don’t get burnt out as much and I think I actually achieve more productivity per minute of working than I used to. I even heard my wife say recently – “You’ve been getting a lot of stuff done.” Weird how things work better when we do them God’s way :).
Anyhow…I just wanted to let you all know that I didn’t disappear and hope that you’ll find the current work I’m doing valuable when it’s finished. Blessings to you!
