The “Action Harvest”AKA The Behavior/Outcome Hierarchy

The Behavior/Outcome Hierarchy… what exactly does that mean and how can we use it? Not every decision you make or action you invest in carries the same amount of return for the time, effort, and mental energy spent. That doesn’t necessarily mean that you don’t occasionally plant the lower yielding crops, but only that you…

Habits Are Like Seeds

Habits are like seeds. If you don’t like the fruit you are seeing in your life, plant new seeds by changing your actions (i.e. starting implementing different habits) so that you get different outcomes. But don’t get frustrated when there isn’t a harvest overnight. The seed must sprout and the plant must grow strong before…

Happiness vs Joy

An email from She Works His Way and the quote on the second slide about millennials by Jordan Raynor resonated with me so much today. It’s not just millennials though; it’s just worse for them because of the number of choices they have. There have been studies showing that the more options we have, the…

Renewing The Mind

Lasting transformation takes time. It is not achieved via a quick fix approach or through a temporary diet and exercise program. To truly sustain a lifestyle that gets the results you want while also honoring God requires a renewal of the mind. A transformation on the inside is the only thing that will ultimately sustain…
