Are you feeling down today? This helped me.

As a Christian, are you on track? Here are my metrics.

As a creator, we are in the business of creating culture. My favorite definition is “ordering chaos for beauty for human thriving for God’s glory” by Pastor Jon Tyson.

Are you tired of being told to focus? Read this about being a jack of all trades by Tim Ferriss. And this about polymaths like Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Warren Buffett, Larry Page, and Jeff Bezos.

But on the other hand, you accept you are not Elon Musk and do need some focus. You need to ship the thing you are working on right now. You in fact are doing too many things at the expense of the one thing you desperately want to do. Then read The ONE Thing by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan.
