Here are the top 5 Christian Leadership blog posts on leadership and productivity I read this week, along with some posts from here you might have missed.
Here are the top 5 Christian leadership blog posts on leadership or productivity that I’ve read this past week:
“Simply put, the Bible makes difficult, counter-cultural demands. It poses to us a question: do we believe obedience offers our people something better than the things we’re asking them to forsake? As pastors, we face this question in every sermon and every counseling session. Will we unashamedly call our people to obedience, even when—especially when—it comes with a high cost?”
“To be honest, I’ve been blessed. In all the churches I’ve served as pastor or interim pastor, most of my members have been great people. Sometimes, though, a church member can be downright mean. Based on our Lawless Group interviews and surveys over the years, here are some of the reasons church members can be mean”.
“We all have witnessed or heard stories of inappropriate workplace behavior—not just everyday mistakes or issues, but the kind of things that get people fired and cause long-term career damage. You may feel that nothing like that will ever happen to you, but knowledge is the best prevention. Here are nine of the most damaging things you can do on the job”.
“It certainly seems like our attention spans are shorter today. But, there’s another phenomenon in our culture that’s also interesting: binge-watching Netflix. By “binge-watch” I mean spending hours watching one episode after another until the shows run out and you get a tiny bit sad because you don’t know what to watch next. Our binge-watching culture proves that people can focus their attention for hours on end. So does that contradict the short attention span idea? No, I think it reveals it for what it is. It’s not that our attention is shorter, but we have a shorter tolerance for things that hold our attention. Stop lights don’t hold people’s attention anymore. Lines at the grocery store don’t hold people’s attention. But a good story still does.”
3 Simple Steps To Get You To Inbox Zero Today (And Why It Will Bring You More Peace Than You Think) by Carey Nieuwhof
“Of all the time-suckers that show up in modern work, email is near the top of most lists. If you tallied the amount of time you spend on email, it would astound you. Add to that the frustration it causes you (the stress of how many unanswered emails you have, the emails you never seem to get answered, the tough ones you’re dreading etc etc), and it’s no wonder email is a headache for almost all of us. A month ago, I decided to get to inbox zero and stay there. 30 days later, I can’t tell you how much better I feel.”
