Best In Faith
Is Your Ability to See God Blinded? By Oswald Chambers
"The people of God in Isaiah’s time had blinded their minds’ ability to see God by looking on the face of idols. But Isaiah made them look up at the heavens; that is, he made them begin to use their power to think and to visualize correctly."
Best In Working Smart
The Inefficiency of Long Hours, by Freakonomics
"The perplexing thing about the cult of overwork is that, as we’ve known for a while, long hours diminish both productivity and quality."
Best In Leadership
A Challenge To Lead, By Keith Eigel
"My hope for all of us is when we find ourselves in the midst of challenges that contradict our current understanding, we will chose to lean into them in ways that give us a new clarity—a self-authored understanding of who we want to be. That’s what the growth that increases our effectiveness is all about."
Best In Thought Provoking
Uninformed or ignorant? By Seth Godin
"The more I think about this, the more I'm aware of just how ignorant I've chosen to be. Not a happy thought, but a useful wake-up call."
