Effective Time Management

I was one of the speakers for Leadership Network’s TheNines Conference again this year.  This year’s task was quite simple – shoot a 5 minute video answering one the 9 questions.  This is the video that we shot answering the question: How Do You Manage Your Time?

My man @SamsonVarughese brought the video to life for me with a little extra effects.

How do you manage your time?

Headed to The Sunshine State!

My family and I are leaving bright and early in the morning to fly to the Sunshine State; Ft. Lauderdale Florida to be exact.  I have been blessed with the opportunity to teach the weekend at Flamingo Road Church; as well as spending some time with their Campus Pastors and other Leaders.  I enjoy visiting, strategizing, sharing, pouring into and learning from others; especially other leaders.  Pastor Troy has done an amazing job of leading a multi-site church in South Florida where the population is 91%-96% unchurched. 

The first half of the trip will be extremely focussed for me; however since we are staying on the beach, I’m sure that’s where my wife/boys will be hanging.  I will get to enjoy some family vacation time during the second half of our trip.

If you are not busy this weekend; you can check me out on Flamingo’s Internet Campus.  Don’t forget that it’s week 2 of At the Movies at, I can’t tell you what movie it is; however I can tell you that it’s a good one.  Scott Rodgers will be holding the fort down for me at the n-dub.

  • Anyone out there from Florida?  Any must see’s or must do’s in the Ft. Lauderdale/Miami Beach area?
  • Are you vacationing this summer? If so, Where?
  • Who or what are you currently learning from?

We Are Going to the ATL!

atl.jpgOkay my wife and I are leaving this Saturday and going to Atlanta for about a week get-a-way.  We are going w/ another couple, who are good friends of both of ours and the wife is actually on staff at the Tulsa Campus.  We will be staying in downtown Atlanta.  I might go check out this guy at Buckhead while I am in town. 

I would like to get your input on some must do’s for entertainment, sight-seeing and dining in Atlanta.  Please share!
