Top-of-Mind Mondays

  • Today is the first day in seven years that I haven’t gone into an office. That is both exhilirating and terrifying all at the same time.
  • I didn’t calculate how draining leaving a job would be. Physically, emotionally, spiritually. It was a peaceful leave, but still. I think I fell asleep at 8 pm all last week!
  • That said, I could not be more excited for the work I’m going to be doing in the next few weeks and months ahead. There are a few things still under wraps, but as soon as I get the okay you’ll be the first to know about them. If you want to see an updated list of where I’ll be in the coming months, go here to my speaking page.
  • My wife is a rock. So glad I married that chick. We sat in a sports bar Saturday night and talked over margaritas. It reminded me of why we’re together—she’s fun!
  • One of the projects I’ve been working on just released their first video on YouTube. Would you consider doing me a favor? Check out the video and maybe forward it on to a few friends. It would help me out and get more people in the know about wipit!
  • I’m actually writing this post from the exact same place the picture above was taken.
  • I watched Wrestlemania last night. So sue me.
  • Have any of you ever used Gazelle.com? I’m investigating the site for myself, but want some on-the-ground opinions from people who have used it already.
  • I’ve joined the ranks of MacBook Air users. So far, so good. Blazingly fast, long battery life, super light, minimal. My one complaint? No backlit keyboard. That seems like a mistake to me.
  • Have you guys checked out the Creative Missions Tour yet? Cleve Persinger is a solid human being with a desire to do good. This project looks like a lot of fun.
  • I’m determined to read The Thank You Economy and Enchantment this week. Have you read either? What did you think?
  • What’s the latest and greatest in your world, deviants?

    First of all why were you drinking margaritas at a sports bar? Come on man..

    Secondly, looks like you are walking into a pretty exciting season. I am excited to continue to follow what the Lord is doing in your life, and how you are enriching his bride though your unique personality and giftings.

    Lastly, I will be in Minneapolis for the summer. Do you have any more info on the LIFT Conference: June 5-6, St. Paul, MN – “Technology and the Church”? I would be interested (and know several others) in attending this conference.

    I’ve used a website like Gazelle & just be prepared for them to call you with a ridiculously low # & then you have to haggle. I found that refusing & saying send it back normally got the number where I wanted it. Its a pain but does work.

    First off, congrats. Big move filled with Big dreams. Excited for you to move to nashville 🙂

    Second off, I am checking out Gazelle.com

    Thirdly I have started the Thank You Economy about 6 times and have made it to chapter 3. mainly because every time I start reading I get an idea and stop reading and start writing. That to me is a great book.
    I love me some Gary Vee
