My same friend from my 3/28 post challenged me to another interesting exercise. In 30 seconds, state what it is that makes you the best at what you do. It's great for refining who you know you are and who you want to become.

I've been working with a new friend of mine on my purpose. It's been facinating to muddle through the clutter of life and try to nail down my purpose... a purpose that really resonates at my core. This isn't a purpose like... "to glorify God" or the Rick Warren purposes. It's a more focused statement about what I am meant to do.
Here's an exercise... can you state your purpose in eleven words or less?

Today Deb was getting ready for our garage sale so I took the kids to Krispy Kreme and then the park to give her space to work.
Emmaleigh started getting into shooting video. Maybe I'll see if she wants to try some editing in iMovie soon.

but not much to say today. We're shooting a video for church this Friday. Hopefully my friend Steve will get to borrow an HD camera from a friend. Haven't used one before so should be fun. We're trying to do a really good job mic-ing and shooting this one and also working on making it a really creative piece.
My family is still on track with the Randy Frazee approach to day planning except that I did sleep in this morning (til 7:30am) and missed my workout. I've got to learn how to give myself downtime at times when I'm really stressed... like now.

I read Randy Frazee's book "Making Room for Life" in the last couple of weeks. We are trying out several of the things he suggests. Working hard from 6am til 6pm... having relational time with family and friends 6pm til 10pm (no work allowed!)... sleeping 10pm til 6am. I also followed his ideas for dinner conversation last night. I had each of the five of us share what we did all day from beginning to end. It was really great. I think we all learned things we didn't know and it was great to see the kids challenged to tell their story to four other people. That's got to be good for their communication skills. We'll try it again tonight.
