It’s Thursday, kiddies: the day when I roll out a few things I’ve been reading over the past week. Three of ‘em, to be exact. Enjoy. (Remember: click on the big bold print to read the entire article.)
(via @robertvadams) I’ve learned that I can manage my time or it’ll manage me. Bob points us to some great tips here.
Do you spend more time fighting fires than making disciples?
Do you find yourself constantly running from one issue to the next without any margin in your life?
Do you feel like you are over-committed to such a degree that the truly important things have been slipping a little?
Do you wish for a reset button and dream of starting over someplace new, just like you did last time? (How did that work out for you?)
Many times we neglect the lasting work of ministry for the instant gratification of solving a problem or being the hero. The thing is, nobody wins when church activity replaces people development. Pastors, more than anyone, must learn to be disciplined to focus, and do only what only they can do.
(via @washingtonpost) A good food truck is a force to be reckoned with. I love this inside look into a few out of D.C.
First of all, no matter what you think is in there, there’s probably more. Most modern food trucks — at least the ones special enough to make it into your regular lunch rotation — are operated by serious foodies whose wheeled restaurants roam more than 300 U.S. cities as part of a $2.7 billion industry. They’re often veteran chefs who are used to the amenities of commercial kitchens or entrepreneurial home cooks who demand the perfect tools.
None of these folks are willing to compromise on equipment, even if it all has to fit, Tetris-like, into the space of a large minivan.
(via @twitter) So that’s why I could never solve it as a kid. I should’ve been juggling three at a time.
