Welcome to Wise Men Wednesday, your weekly dose of Christian wisdom to thrive at home and in your business.
Posts I published this week:
The Night Satan Assaulted Me In My Bedroom And Was Defeated:
”I tossed off the warm comforter and tip toed through the cold and quiet twilight air and into the living room, I didn’t want to wake my wife… This battle is between me, God, and Satan. I quietly closed the bedroom door, flipped on a lamp, and rushed to my neglected Bible on the bottom of a pile of books and flipped to the story of Jesus in the wilderness recorded in the book of Matthew…”
Being Fired Poorly Taught Me How To Correctly Let Others Go:
For the first time ever I share the story of how I was let go from my job at Hollister. I have been too embarrassed to share this in the past, but I think that you’ll benefit tremendously by hearing about my failures. And through this story you’ll learn a lesson on how to let people go correctly.
In case you want to catch up on all the prior posts the full catalog is here.
Words of wisdom:
An excerpt from So Good They Can’t Ignore You, by Cal Newport:
“I love what I do for a living. I’m also confident that as I continue my commitment to the ideas discovered in my quest, this love will only deepen. Thomas feels the same way about his work. So do most of the people I profiled in the book. I want you to share in this confidence. To accomplish this goal, let the rules I uncovered guide you. Don’t obsess over discovering your true calling. Instead, master rare and valuable skills. Once you build up the career capital that these skills generate, invest it wisely. Use it to acquire control over what you do and how you do it, and to identify and act on a life-changing mission. This philosophy is less sexy than the fantasy of dropping everything to go live among the monks in the mountains, but it’s also a philosophy that has been shown time and again to actually work.”
