Three major assaults

Hello, friend.

At Calm Capital's Good Business Gathering last fall, I spoke about the importance of creating and safeguarding personal margin. Eventually, I plan to elaborate on that in an essay.

In the meantime, I’d like you to ponder these two quotes with me.

Richard Foster, The Celebration of Discipline:

In contemporary society, our Adversary majors in three things: noise, hurry, and crowds.

AW Tozer, The Pursuit of God:

The old question, "What is the chief end of man?" is now answered, "To dash around the world and add to the din thereof." Speed and noise are evidence of weakness, not strength.

The authors published both books well before the Information Age. It seems people were dealing with the same struggles of busyness and distraction back then.

How are things with you? Family well?

The boys are experiencing the full weight of their schoolwork. I’ve been proud of how well they’ve handled staying focused on getting things done.

Sherry is taking on more responsibility within our homeschool co-op. She never fails to impress me with how well she raises her level of leadership. Limitless!

Sandhills Highlanders Golf is underway. I have nine players between junior varsity and varsity. Our first varsity tournament is this week. Given the nature of homeschool athletes, a lot of the practices and coaching is asynchronous. I’m hoping the years leading distributed business teams will come in handy.

Seen, heard, or read anything interesting? Is there anything you're digging right now?

Hat tip to my friend (and talented artist in his own right), Rob Blackwell, for finding Worth a listen if you like songwriter/indie rock:
