I had a chance today in our Men's group at Buckhead Church to talk about hearing the voice of God. This was based on a series called "Hear I Am" a few weeks ago. The message that Joel Thomas shared had a direct impact on me. I for a long time thought that God speaking to me was going to be a massive bullhorn. Or it was going to be an epiphany and a "Aha!" moment. What he shared that is ordinary acts and being willing to perform them can lead to extraordinary outcomes. As I thought about it, I asked myself does anything I do matter? I came to a fast answered in the affirmative and realized that every act we do to support someone. To love one another authentically matters. To show kindness to all and our world matters. All these collectively impact the lives of others in ways, that we don't see or in some cases, recognize. I'm always saying on the podcast(s), that we should keep painting the masterpiece in the mirror. Joel shared something similar in his message. I believe that when we do ordinary things out of love, it adds beautiful color to the canvas. It brightens not only our masterpiece, but the piece de resistance of others. Message can be found here.
Learn something ever day. That's it, end of post, LOL (Do people still say this?). This is a necessary piece of my (and perhaps your) productivity journey. What this means is that anything I learn that could conceivably help my life, I capture it. I use a couple of tools:
Learning each day gives me energy. I literally feel my brain and the excitement, especially when it is something that is completely foreign to me. What gets you excited? Learning each day is the moment that I feel my mind and spirit in alignment.
