Check It Out – Turn the Faucets On

I’ve never considered myself an entrepreneur, mainly because I have never started an outside business. So today’s link may seem a little strange.

But, if you fancy yourself an entrepreneur, or are even intrigued by the idea, this short article by Jon Acuff is worth the read.

Here’s a taste:

“The best time to build a new business is when you don’t need it to support your family.”

Even if you’re not interested in building a new business or making more money, you can learn something from the read. Sometimes, growing in leadership means looking at something that may not apply and learning from it anyway.

Enjoy!

This morning on my run I finished a really good podcast-the Carey Nieuwhof Leadership Podcast (click here for the Podcast and show notes). Carey does a great job on the show notes of touching on some of the content, so scroll down the page if you click over there.

His guest was Todd Adkins and they talked about leadership development. There were a lot of good tips and bits of information, and it was very challenging for me as well.

You should check it out!

Check It Out – Rows vs. Round Tables

Share this:

A few summers ago I took a group of student leaders to a conference in the metroplex. While there, instead of sitting in rows, we sat around tables. We came home and within a few months we made the switch in our youth room to round tables.

The discussion, warmth, and intentionality we have seen from the use of tables has been fascinating. Today, many of the kids in the youth ministry here don’t know anything but sitting at round tables on a Wednesday night.

I found this article very interesting and thought provoking. We do not have the ability in our sanctuary to pull this off, but I am intrigued nevertheless. I do not know if round tables are the final answer, but for our youth ministry, they have made a noticeable difference in engagement and relationship.

Here’s a short clip:

Sunday church services had become just another spectator event. Attendees came, sat, stared, spoke to no one, and went home. It wasn’t a community of believers. It was just another passive audience of disconnected strangers.

But then somebody rearranged the furniture. And things started to change.

Check It Out – Don’t Judge Too Quickly

Share this:

There are a few blogs that I get delivered to my email inbox and make sure to not delete until I’ve read them. Jon Acuff’s blog posts fall into that category.

Here’s one from a few weeks back that I thought was valuable. It’s a quick read, but here’s a short part of it:

We tend to over edit ourselves during the creative process and it’s a colossal mistake. Why? Because you’re usually the worst judge of things you create.
