My Notebook, Part I

I love notebooks. The old-fashioned, paper ones. With lines. When I get to the end of a notebook, though, it is like finishing a chapter of my life, so I like to read back through the pages to reflect on lessons I learned, remember thoughts and questions I had, and make sure every to-do list is checked off.

January is a good time to start a new notebook, so I will walk you through a little bit of the filled book before I shelf it. The first page was notes taken at a Christian Leadership Conference at Camp Seafarer from speaker (and now friend) Elizabeth Payne.

My notes:

“Be grateful for whoever comes because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.” Rumi.

Great leaders:

  • Make the most of your time
  • Choose to serve (collaborate, create, celebrate, empower, empathize, excel, cast vision)
  • Be the best version of yourselves
  • Bring passion
  • Act as a constant inquirer
  • Live on the edge of breakthrough

Great leaders have goals:

  • Do what you do best, every day
  • Unpack your suitcase of potential
  • Hold yourself accountable

If God has an idea that he needs to send to earth, he wraps a body around it. If it is a really big idea, he wraps many bodies around it. It is our job to get God’s ideas out and/or accomplished before our bodies leave this earth.

  • Choose to serve
