Progress Not Perfection

Today, Kirk, my friend and mentor for all things goal oriented is in Switzerland competing in an Ironman race. If you are not familiar with all that this entails, it is basically this:
Swim farther than most people can run (2.4 mi),
Bike farther than most people drive (112 mi), and
Then run a marathon (26.2 mi).
No big deal, right?

Stop Waiting For The Crowds To Show Up

There is part of me that loves statistics. There is another part of me that hates them. I love what they can tell you about trends that are happening and how people are responding with what you are creating online. I hate how they can easily control you and call you to worship them.

The Way To Freedom According To Dietrich Bonhoeffer

I recently finished reading Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas, the amazing and comprehensive account of the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. You will probably see my dropping many quotes to you from this book in the future because Bonhoeffer’s was such a master of distilling truth into words.

My studio is offline, so I'm taking a break from the podcast this week. Don't let this be an excuse to stand still this morning. In lieu of you hearing my beautiful voice this morning, here is a quote that will suffice.
