How are things going? What are some of your challenges these days?
Hey Dave. Sorry to go silent. Nice to know someone misses my posts already!
Great question about my challenges. Busyness is my biggest one right now. I’m working on two transitions at work right now, mentoring a new manager who will report to me for a month, and getting my replacement up to speed so I can start my leadership development job.
Busyness might be worth a blog some day. Steve Moore did a great vlog on the subject on The Mission Exchange site. He said God never makes you busy. If you’re busy, you have to ask who did that to you: yourself or someone else?
Hope you’re doing well. Gotta run. 😉
Hey I don’t want to put any more pressure on you. I just think you’re thoughts are worth reading.
It will be fun to follow you as you develop this new position your moving into.
Have a great week.
