Do Work That Matters.
Productivity isn’t just about getting more things done. It’s about getting the right things done–the things that count, make a difference, and move the world forward. In our current era of massive overload, this is harder than ever before.
So how do you get more of the right things done without confusing mere activity for actual productivity?
Breaking Free From Barriers.
Many people with great, world-changing ideas aren’t able to make them happen. Most people are trying to make a difference where they are, yet they feel overwhelmed, overloaded, and far too busy.
How do you get “unstuck”—without resorting to complex systems that take more time to keep up than they actually save?
I am director of career development at The King’s College NYC and author of the best-selling book on faith-based productivity, What’s Best Next: How the Gospel Transforms the Way You Get Things Done. I’m also co-founder of a business by the same name, which is devoted to helping you be more productive in a gospel-centered way.
I moved to Manhattan a couple of years ago from the midwest and love it. My whole life I was always thinking “where is everyone?” Then I moved out here and finally found out. I love being in a busy city and around crowds. I love the fact that there are so many people to meet out here and that you meet fascinating and super smart people from all over the world — China, Europe, Africa, and everywhere else.
Taking a slight cue from Tim Challies, here’s my angle on things:
Christian. I believe Jesus died, rose again, and is Lord, and that this is the defining truth for all of life.
Protestant. I believe Luther and the Reformers got it right on the nature of the gospel–we are accepted by God through faith alone in the substitutionary work of Christ alone.
Reformed. I believe God is in control of all things and affirm the doctrines of grace.
Evangelical. I believe that evangelicalism is not dead and does not need to be reformed the way that some folks have been trying.
