#500 - 500 POSTS WRITTEN. 5 WRITING LESSONS LEARNED.

1. HAVING WRITTEN > BEING READ

Though I have yet to develop the writing habit I one day wish to have, I am convinced that the satisfaction that comes from "having written" far exceeds the satisfaction that comes from having your writing read.

Though people's comments on how your writing has impacted them can be fulfilling, it does not compare to the fulfillment of knowing that you have consistently committed yourself to your craft regardless of the size/response of your audience. 

2. QUANTITY > QUALITY

Inspiring, poignant sentences don't just happen. They appear after many uninspiring, bland sentences have been written first. Coherent, cohesive paragraphs don't just happen. They come to fruition after many incoherent, jumbled paragraphs have been written first. Shareable, relevant content doesn't just happen. It gets created after much unshareable, irrelevant content  has been written first.

My best writing has never been a result of me trying to produce quality writing. My best writing has always "risen from the ashes" of the quantity of bad writing I have produced!

3. RE-COMMITTING > QUITTING

I have quit writing more times than I have quit anything else in my life. I have been consistently inconsistent in my quest to become a committed writer. I have fallen short of my writing goals so much so that I'm not even sure if I believe that I am capable of reaching the goals I continue to set for myself. 

But what I have found to be true is this, what makes you a writer is not whether or not you quit, what makes you a writer is your resolve to re-commit  after you quit. What makes you a writer is your decision to start writing even though 3 months have passed without you writing a single word. What makes you a writer is the inner voice that tells you,  "You will try again because if you don't you will be neglecting not a hobby, but your responsibility." 

4. LESS > MORE

When I use 15 words to communicate something that can be effectively communicated with 5, I force the reader to work harder than they should have to.

Use less words. Communicate more clearly.

 (I want to write more about this, but if I did I'd be violating my own lesson!)

5. FOR ME > FOR OTHERS

Though I hope you get something out of this post, I wrote it primarily for me. I wrote it so I could process and synthesize the lessons I've learned through almost 10 years of writing.

I have found that writing "for me" has made it easier for me to write over the years. Writing what I am learning. Writing what I want to remember. Writing in a tone that I am comfortable reading. Writing about experiences am having.

Though this may seem self-absorbed, selfish, or inconsiderate, when I take this approach my writing becomes most natural. It flows. It's real. It's honest.

Every time I become overly concerned with what others will think about what I am writing, I tend to lose my way. I tend to lose myself. 

Write for you. You'll be surprised. It will end up serving others as well because more people are like you then you think! 

 What lessons have you learned about writing? Please leave your comments below. I'd love to learn from you! 

#499 - DEADLINES INDUCE DISCIPLINE

I wish I didn't need them. I wish I was more motivated without them. I wish I could be committed in spite of them. But the reality is, I can't.

I need deadlines. 

Deadlines hold me accountable. Deadlines increase my sense of urgency. Deadlines set the boundaries for how I will invest my time. Deadlines keep me focused. Deadlines force me to prioritize.

Deadlines induce discipline.

The discipline to start. The discipline to persevere. The discipline to finish. Deadlines bring out my most disciplined self.

With that in mind, being that it is December 1, there is a deadline that is hanging over all of our heads: the end of the year.

How will you leverage this deadline to finish the year strong? What disciplines will the deadline of "by the end of 2016" induce? What will you complete by the time the year is up?

I encourage you to write a couple of things down and see if the deadline of the end of the year doesn't add extra motivation to complete something you've started.

#497 - AN OPEN LETTER TO MY FUTURE BROTHER-IN-LAW: DONAVAN DOAN

Dear Donavan,

In a little more than 24 hours, you are going to marry my one and only baby sister Christina Paz. Though she grew up with three brothers and a father, who love her with all of our hearts, after tomorrow, you are going to be THE primary male voice, influence, spiritual leader, and friend in her life. So it is with that in mind that I want to share a few thoughts...

  1. Christina is a reader. Please make sure she always has a budget for books and nice bookshelves where she can store them.
  2. Christina is a writer. Please make sure she always has a Macbook. Not the latest one necessarily, but definitely not one that is super old. Writers write best on Apple products.
  3. Christina is a romantic. Please take her on dates that make her feel special, and binge watch the sappy shows/movies with her that have guys in them taking their girls on dates that make them feel special. 
  4. Christina is a Giants and Warriors fan...for life. Don't try to con her into becoming a fan of any Los Angeles sports franchise. Notice I didn't say please. 
  5. Christina is a leader. Please create the proper space for her to exercise her leadership gifting within your home. Also, please do everything you can to encourage her to lead outside of the home as well. 
  6. Christina loves her family. Though she is "leaving" us and being united with you, please make an effort to reunite us often. Her heart is filled after time spent with her family. Also, our times of laughter, joking, and sarcasm just aren't the same when she's not there. 
  7. Christina loves Jesus. Please give her plenty of reasons to love Jesus more. Love her like Christ loves the Church. Sacrifice for her like Christ sacrifices for the Church. Forgive her like Christ forgives the Church. Extend grace to her like Christ extends grace to the Church. Bless her like Christ blesses the Church. 

Now if that all seems like a bit much, here's what you need to know Donavan: If anyone can love my sister in all the ways that I've just outlined above, it is YOU! I choose YOU Donavan Doan! And if you had a twin, I would still choose YOU!

You are PERFECT for my sister. 

Donavan, you are a man of integrity. You are a man of high values. You are a man of character. You are patient. You are kind. You are compassionate. You are responsible. You are wise. You are diligent. You love the Lord. You fear the Lord. You trust the Lord. 

Donavan, I believe in you. 

You will lead your family well, and you will help my sister to become the woman of God that she was originally created to become. I can trust that you will do this because I know that you trust that Christ will do this through you!

Though you are blessed to have Christina as your wife, she is blessed to have you as her husband, and we are blessed to have you join our family. 

Tomorrow is surely going to be a day you will remember for a very long time. I can't wait to celebrate with you. I love you Donavan. 

Your brother, 

Edward

#496 - 10 TYPES OF FRIENDS I JUST REMOVED FROM MY FEEDS

Every day you and I consume content. Much of which comes through the "feeds" of our various social media platforms. And whether we know it or not, our "feeds" are indeed feeding us!

News. Satire. Opinions. Videos. Links. Pictures. Memes. GIFs. Blogs. Music. Etc.  

Every person, business, and organization, with the content that they are producing, is not only encroaching on your time, but, for better or for worse, they are influencing your life. 

With this in mind, in an effort to "eat healthier" from the table of social media, here are 10 "types of friends" I have recently removed (unfollowed) from my Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram feeds.

  1. Negative Nancy's
  2. Seductive Sally's
  3. Political Paulie's 
  4. Fault-Finding Frankie's
  5. Ranting Randy's
  6. Egotistical Eddy's (I understand if you feel you need to unfollow ME!)
  7. Annoying Angie's
  8. Salesman Sammy's
  9. Pet-Obsessed Petey's
  10. Weight-Lifiting Wally's 

Here are the 4 "types of friends" I found myself keeping in my feed...

  1. The Encouragers 
  2. The Inspirers
  3. The Informers
  4. The Humorists

There is too much purpose, passion, and legacy you have been created to contribute for you to have your time wasted by unnecessary, distracting, distasteful, and disrespectful posts to your various feeds.

Take action. De-clutter and detach.    

Why? Because the old adage is as appropriate here as it is anywhere else...

You ARE what you EAT.

#492 - NO SHORTCUTS

You may have heard it said that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. Well today, I heard someone say...

The longest distance between two points is a shortcut.

So poignant. And, in my experience, so true.

When it comes to the fulfillment of your purpose, calling, or any other major goal you may have, the shortcut is the long route.  The shortcut is the poor choice. The shortcut will cause the most delay.

Why? Because shortcuts sabotage.

Shortcuts sabotage the process. Shortcuts sabotage growth. Shortcuts sabotage maturity. Shortcuts sabotage development. Shortcuts sabotage learning.  

In the end, a shortcut will sabotage your ability to sustain the thing you took the shortcut to obtain.  

If you want to obtain good health, but don't want to sustain it, take a shortcut. If you want to obtain wealth, but don't want to sustain it, take a shortcut. If you want to obtain a leadership position, but don't want to sustain it, take a shortcut.

But, if you want sustained health, wealth, influence, and impact, say "no" to any shortcut you may be tempted to take and say "yes" to the process.

Say yes to earning. Say yes to deserving. Say yes to enduring. Say yes to experience. Say yes to withstanding the test of time. 

Your destination will be far more gratifying and longer lasting when you do. 

#491 - I AM ONLY A WINDOW

I am only a window.

And my desire is that, through me, you would see the Son. 

As a window, If I'm doing my job correctly, through me, you will see the beauty of the Son. You will feel the warmth of the Son. You will experience the nourishment of the Son. It is my desire that, through me, you will fall in love with the Son. You will desire to worship the Son. You will long to be with the Son. 

I am only a window. 

I was created for the sole purpose of giving you a clear view of the Son. I'm just the humble means to a glorious end. Though you may appreciate me for revealing the Son to you in a way that the Son had not been revealed to you before, please keep your eyes on the Son.

If you take your eyes off of the Son and start to concern yourself with the window, the window will always leave you disappointed. The window will always leave you wanting more. The window will always leave you unfulfilled. Only the Son can satisfy.   

I am only a window. 

I will do my best to keep myself free of blemish and stain so that your view of the Son can remain unobstructed. I will do my best to remain clean and clear so that your enjoyment of the Son can remain unhindered. I will do my best to widen and grow so that your understanding of the Son can always be ever increasing.  

At the end of the day though, you must remember, I am only a window.

I am breakable. I am finite. I am limited. And there will come a day when my ability will wane and you will no longer be able to see the Son through me for I will be no more. 

But, the Son will remain.

And another window will appear....

#490 - MY SOURCE OF LEADERSHIP CONFIDENCE

My personal obedience to God - that's where the confidence to lead someone else to be obedient to God comes from. My confession of sin. My repentance for wrongdoing. My steps of faith. My acts of obedience. My sacrifice. My surrender. Without it, I'm a fraud. 

My spiritual leadership is only as legitimate as I am obedient.

I cannot lead someone, with integrity, to trust God if I am not trusting God. I cannot encourage someone, with authenticity, to confess sin if I am not confessing sin. I cannot direct someone, with authority, to take a difficult step of faith if I am not taking difficult steps of faith.  

I cannot lead someone, with urgency, to do the last thing that God is leading them to do if I have not done the last thing that God has led me to do. 

The Church doesn't need another leader who is talking the talk but not walking the walk. The Church doesn't need another leader who isn't first leading themselves. The Church doesn't need another leader who has no personal experience with the Gospel in which they are leading people to receive.

The Church needs leaders who are, first and foremost, recipients of the grace they are distributing. The Church needs leaders who are well acquainted with the joys of following the commands they are encouraging others to obey. The Church needs leaders who are more committed to their sanctification than to the sanctification of others.

With all this in mind, if you are a Christian leader, I encourage you to be obedient God.

Whatever He is leading you to do...do it. Today.

The integrity and authenticity of your leadership is depending upon it. 

  

#489 - THE AMAZING THING ABOUT GRACE

As I was reflecting on God's grace today, one thought made this grace that is already so beautiful to me, even more glorious than it already is. Though this already may be obvious to you, the thought was this: God does not owe me this grace.

This grace that created me. This grace that provides for me. This grace that sustains me. This grace that saved me. This grace that forgives me. This grace that sanctifies me. This grace that gives me a purpose. This grace that gives me gifts, talents, and abilities to carry out my purpose. This grace that promises to reunite me with Him. God does not owe me this grace.

I have not earned it. I have done nothing to deserve it. Absolutely nothing.

Yet He gives it to me anyways.

What I have earned is death. What I have merited is separation from God. What I deserve is punishment for sinning against fellow image-bearers of God and for sinning against God Himself.

But what I'm given...is grace. 

Though there are countless implications for how this amazing grace that I have received should impact how I treat others, the one at the top of my mind is this:

Grace is most authentic when the recipient is least deserving.

#488 - THIS MAKES WORRY IMPOSSIBLE

You can't simultaneously worship and worry. You just can't do it.

You can't be in awe of God's mercy towards you and worry about your money.
You can't be amazed by God's grace towards you and worry about your goals.
You can't be astounded by God's love towards you and worry about your living.

When being perfectly loved and accepted by the Infinite is real, being stressed out and worried about the finite is rather ridiculous. 

When enamored by the epic truth that you are God's creation, you will cease to worry about whether or not you are under God's care.

When enthralled by the sovereign reality that God opened up your eyes to your need for a Savior, you will cease to worry about whether or not He can open up the doors to fulfill your need for a salary

When enlightened by the glorious fact that God has forgiven you of your transgressions, you will cease to worry about whether or not He will with you in your transitions.

You can't simultaneously worship and worry.

So worship God today. For what He's done. For who He is. And for where He has brought you. Thank Him. Reflect on His goodness. Praise Him for His faithfulness to His promises. Lend your best words, thoughts, and emotions towards making much of the only One worthy of making much of. Do this.

And watch your worry disappear.  

#487 - LEADING "FROM" VS. LEADING "FOR"

Lead FROM not FOR...

God's approval.
God's acceptance. 
God's affirmation. 

God's pleasure. 
God's promises. 
God's provision. 

God's grace. 
God's goodness. 
God's gifts. 

In Christ, you are ALREADY infinitely loved. You are ALREADY eternally accepted. You are ALREADY forever forgiven. How well you lead DOES NOTHING to change how God ALREADY sees you.

You can't lose what Christ has earned on your behalf.

Now lead like that's true. Because it is.

Risk greatly. Love deeply. Challenge strongly. Repent consistently.

I dare you.

#486 - LEADERSHIP PIPELINE CONFERENCE DAY 2

Though there were many insights that I enjoyed from the 10 different communicators who spoke on the subject of leadership/discipleship over a span of 12 hours, one of the most impactful ideas that I want to immediately apply to my life is to implement 3 prayers/confessions that Paul Tripp prays every morning.

The prayer/confessions are these:

  1. I am a person in desperate need of help today.
  2. Please send Your helpers my way.
  3. Grant me the humility to accept Your help when it comes.

These prayers will keep me aware of two very important truths (Hebrews 3:12-13), that if unattended to, will be the downfall of my life and my ministry:

  1. There is a presence and a power in remaining sin.
  2. Sin is deceitful.

I refuse to be blind to the sin that can/does so easily ensnare me. Praying these prayers will help towards that end.

I encourage you to pray them too.

#485 - LEADERSHIP PIPELINE CONFERENCE DAY 1

Be an equipper not a doer. 

The greatest contribution you can give is not in what you do it is in who you develop. The best use of your time is not in completing tasks but in providing training. The highest value that you add is not in what you finish, but it is in who you help flourish!

Be an equipper not a doer.  

Equip staff to lead leaders.
Equip leaders to lead teams.
Equip teams to lead people.

Be an equipper not a doer.  

Increase knowledge.
Provide experience.
Give coaching.

Be an equipper not a doer.

Equipping others will multiply your influence.
Equipping others will increases your organization's capacity.
Equipping others will add value to your people's lives. 

Be an equipper not a doer.

Because...if you don't commit to equipping over doing, in due time, the effectiveness of your organization will. be. done. 

#484 - AN UNLIKELY THIEF OF JOY

Joy and dishonor cannot co-exist.

I have never dishonored my parents, teachers, civil authorities, friends, family members, and/or enemies and been simultaneously filled with joy. It just hasn't happened.

I have never spoken ill of someone and felt well. I have never belittled another person and felt my heart grow. I have never criticized and felt content. Dishonoring another person has always left me wanting more.  

There may be satisfaction for a moment, but it's a satisfaction that makes me feel small, weak, and immature. There is absolutely nothing Godly about dishonoring another person.  

But...when I honor another individual, whether they "deserve" it or not, something incredible happens on the inside of me. I am filled with a sense of "having done the right thing." I am overcome with peace. I feel obedient. I have joy in knowing that in honoring a fellow image-bearer of God (all human beings), I am honoring God Himself! 

Irrespective of whether the person I am honoring knows it or appreciates it, every time I speak highly of, show respect towards, and am grateful for another person (especially someone who is difficult to honor), I can go to sleep confident that I have done right. 

With all this in mind, I encourage you to give honor to someone who you've historically dishonored.   

Give honor to your underserving parents.
Give honor to your inconsiderate boss.
Give honor to your unrepentant "haters."
Give honor to your unrelenting accusers.
Give honor to your difficult co-workers. 
Give honor to your "suspect" presidential candidates. (Yikes!)

Slander, gossip, belittling, vilifying, criticizing, and condemning is doing nothing beneficial for your soul.

Dishonor is a posture of the heart that, if not attended to, will kill you like an undetected cancer.  

GIVE HONOR.

Your joy is on the line.
