If you try to become the “it” writer, speaker, leader of the moment, you might be guilty of trying to become a fashionable leader. Don’t fall for it. If you become the fashionable leader of the moment, you’ll be gone as fast as bell bottoms. The same people who praise you today will be distancing themselves from you tomorrow.

Instead, try to peak when you’re 65.

What I mean by this is…

Why People Do and Don’t Like Tim Tebow

A couple weeks ago a few of Tim Tebow’s teammates anonymously spoke to the press about their second-string quarterback. While most players who work with Tebow have only positive things to say about him, these players were a little disrespectful. The fact they spoke anonymously was weak, and Coach Ryan went so far as to call them cowards.

Regardless, Tim Tebow has become one of those characters people either love or hate. Sports announcers praise him or roll their eyes. There seems to be…

What happens when your story hasn’t turned out like you wanted? When you feel there is a part of your story that you wish you could erase or edit out somehow yet no matter how hard you try, it’s there reminding you … accusing you.

I can feel good about where I am in my story and then out of nowhere something reminds me of harmful decisions I made in the past and shame hits me like the turkey buzzard that flew into my car on the interstate this summer. Feathers exploded 50 feet into the air like a giant pillow fight and cost me $2,500.00 in damage, though the bird fared a lot worse. One of the most painful things about looking back is…

Does the term Zerrissenheit mean anything to you? It sounds like the cousin of gazuntheit, but its meaning is quite different than an exclamation after a sneeze. The German term is loosely translated to mean torn-to-pieces-hood. Hurry, distraction, worry and pre-occupation are all expressions of the Zerrissenheit lifestyle.

Amidst the rush of trying to serve our friends in Africa with access to safe water and HIV/AIDS care for the last eight years, I have let the health of my own life deteriorate. The rotten fruits I have been producing are exhaustion, fear, jealousy and anxiety, things we all agree make up a lousy story.

On MySubplot.com, I committed to practicing the spiritual discipline of Rest. I am a month into my sabbatical, and am just now
