Do fewer things better
The greatest (most inspiring) message ever preached was the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) by Jesus.
What if you knew you had only 30 days to live and you could leave behind only one message, one song, one painting, one teaching series, or one coaching program, what would that be? What would you want to be remembered for? What would be your legacy?
That’s a tough question. Perhaps for me, it would be the “I Was Busy, Now I’m Not” coaching program, teaching people how to be godly stewards with their TIME so they can accomplish far more than they ever thought possible. That’s because I believe that time is our most valuable resource.
And TIME is obviously a hot button for many people nowadays as demonstrated by the record number of people who registered for the free “I Was Busy, Now I’m Not” webinar Lynne Lee and I cohosted on May 12.
While working on the Member site for the I Was Busy, Now I’m Not coaching program, I happened to read the introduction of my transcript for “Redeeming The Time” – a webinar I cohosted with Carrie Stone on January 21, 2010 with Rick Grubbs as our guest speaker. That transcript reminded me that Rick’s presentation was outstanding because he is passionate about the topic and has shared his presentation more than 1,500 times in 49 states and 20 countries.
Obviously, there’s something to this – doing few things better. That’s the power in FOCUS.
I remember hearing Chic Thompson share his presentation about Ideas in Charlottesville to a large group of business people about ten years ago. Once again, that was outstanding because he is passionate about the subject and had shared his presentation so many times. And companies paid him as much as $10,000-$15,000 per day to come to them and teach their staff.
In Scroll #4 of “The Greatest Salesman in the World” by Og Mandino, the greatest salesman states, “never will I forget that many have attained great wealth and success with only one sales talk, delivered with excellence.” Next to the Bible, that book that has had the greatest impact on me of any book.
So what? Now what?
Do Fewer Things Better
I’m looking for a few good men (and women) to join those already signed up the 4-week “I Was Busy, Now I’m Not” coaching program. Collectively, we are going to get out of the rat race to focus on what’s most important in each of our lives.
One of the things each of us (including me) is going to do during this 4-week is to identify 12 new habits to establish over the next year, working on one new habit each month. I decided that the first habit I am going to work on is to “Exercise every morning” (6 days per week) starting May 16. I’ve already got 1.5 hours blocked off each day for the upcoming week.

4) Gaither Vocal Band – Alpha and Omega
Blessings to do fewer things better!
