In today’s show we talk about several topics, where I have been and what I have been doing during my hiatus. I have started a new podcast with my wife. The link is in the bottom in the show notes.

Show Notes:

I took several trips, including three camping trips, one to Schlitterbahn (world’s biggest waterpark) Lena, Illinois by way of Chicago – TWICE, and Houston on at least three occasions. I was busy and thus the reason for few podcasts.

Is it possible to have too many things going on? I talk about four major areas of life:

  • Physical
  • Emotional
  • Mental
  • Spiritual
Today I talk about a subcategory of the above, career.  I discuss how I found my purpose in teaching.  Teaching is tough in today’s climate with testing and apathy.  How do you stand out?  I found a different job, but didn’t take it in the end, find out why. Part of the reason is to become good or excellent at what I do.  To do that, time is needed and you can’t do everything.  I discovered three reasons why focusing in on the few things in life help make you better:
  • More Time
  • Less Stress
  • Renewed Interest
I am trying to find connection in all things in my life so that I can focus on my purpose.  I have tied my life together so I can be more effective in all areas of my life.  One area I want more focus on is church and my job there.  Spoke today with our pastor about modernists and post moderns, interesting discussion.
We also talk about the modernists/post-modernists and how they are affected and how they effect the places they work and participate it. e.g. the church and our educational institutions.  It is difficult to work in these environments in today’s world. Todd has a heart for ministry and can help you if you are in the ministry.  Fill out this form and let’s get started.
