As I write this post, the wind is rushing through the trees outside my window. It sounds very peaceful.
But isn’t going to stay that way. Hurricane Ike is about 200 miles away heading straight for us.
Hopefully we will just get a lot of rain and a sleepless night. More than likely we will at least lose power, and probably internet access. This is to let you know that DFL may be delayed Monday. I’m taking action today to make it just a matter of clicking a couple of buttons on a website, but I may not even be able to do that.
So if it isn’t there on Monday, be patient and pray for us.
If you want to do something for me. Leave a comment on this blog post and tell me if you like the new on location episode format or the simpler black background format.
You can’t live life to the fullest if you ignore morality, and the greatest teacher in the world on morality was Jesus. Today’s distinction looks at the sermon on the mount and short version, which is the golden rule. Learn a common misconception about the golden rule from two girls in bikinis, and the correct way to look at good and evil from D&D.
On this episode of Distinctions For Life we learn about doing things poorly and why sometimes, even often, that is a good thing. Most of the time when we learn a new skill we have to do it poorly, not well. There is a progression of understanding that happens and we’ll talk about the key to making that work. Personal growth is no different and requires giving ourselves permission to do something badly before doing it well.
If we want to grow as a person and make a positive impact on the world, we need to keep track of what we are doing. Journaling is key to this, but most of us go about it in the wrong way. As a result we give up on the practice before it does us any good. This week we’ll put together a quote from Tony Robbins and a speech by Steve Jobs to find a better way to journal.
