A Book I’m Revisiting – The 12 Week Year
This book has helped me speed up the execution of important projects. It is essentially a guide to shortening your execution cycle down from one year to twelve weeks. Give it a shot; it makes a ton of sense.
Most organizations and individuals work in the context of annual goals and plans; a twelve-month execution cycle. Instead, The 12 Week Year avoids the pitfalls and low productivity of annualized thinking. This book redefines your “year” to be 12 weeks long. In 12 weeks, there just isn’t enough time to get complacent, and urgency increases and intensifies. The 12 Week Year creates focus and clarity on what matters most and a sense of urgency to do it now. In the end more of the important stuff gets done and the impact on results is profound.
Whole Food Supplement I Trust – NeoLife
My friend, Josh Clark, first introduced me to NeoLife several years ago. His personal experience is compelling – his mom’s life was literally saved by using their supplements.
One of my focuses for 2020 is to put less of an emphasis on managing my time and focus more on managing my energy. NeoLife’s whole food based vitamins are helping in a big way. I am currently using the Vitality Pack and NeoLife Tea. I have used their shakes and detoxs in the past.
If you’re looking for a healthy solution, I’d encourage you to give NeoLife a try. You can order as needed, or subscribe to have it delivered to you automatically each month. I haven’t been involved in the “business” side of things, but there are great discounts and perks if you decide to become a Club Member or a Promoter.
A Fascinating Church History Podcast – Paradise and Utopia
One of my mentors — sometimes tormentor 🙂 — suggested I listen to this podcast before our trip to Israel. It is chocked full of interesting church history from an Orthodox Church perspective.
This is a series of forty reflections on the history of Christian civilization, or Christendom (and will include additional introductory and concluding episodes). It is divided into two halves tracing the “rise” of Christendom in early times and its “fall” in modern times. The entire podcast is organized around the theme of “paradise and utopia” – that is, of the civilization’s orientation toward the kingdom of heaven when traditional Christianity was influential, and of its “disorientation” toward the fallen world in the wake of traditional Christianity’s decline in the west following the Great Schism.
