When a Herd of Bulls Chases You Down

I was twelve and living on a ranch. Ya, it was a weird time in my life. One day after school I was walking in a fenced-in field with a friend. We were chatting and enjoying the beautiful day. That was, until we noticed five bulls heading in our direction. The bulls began walking faster.…

I Sold Pheromone Perfume at My First Job

If you aren’t familiar with pheromone perfume, let me educate you. Pheromones are the chemicals all living things release while mating. It’s a chemical that’s supposed to stimulate attraction between sexes. And there are a few types of perfumes that (supposedly) make use of these chemicals in their recipes to maximize attraction. That’s what I helped…

You Don’t Need Other People

Did you know the average book—sold through a publisher—sells around 500 copies. When you take into account the phenomenal sellers that make the New York Times list…that means most books sell less than that. Most sell 400 or below. I wrote a short e-book that sold 500 copies in less than two months. And no,…

In January, I wrote about my new goal for the year. I plan to do less, and to get more results from doing less. That means I’ll be refining everything I do until I’m only doing the things that are most effective for me. I’m stopping a lot of things. But does that mean I…

3 Things Lakewood Church Does Right

My wife gave me a brilliant idea. She suggested, each time I visit a church, I share on my blog three things the church did right. I always look for these sorts of things when I visit a church, so it was a great suggestion. I don’t visit churches nearly as often as I’d like.…

How to Be a Coffee Cupper

Did you know there’s a job called coffee cupping. Coffee cuppers are the folks who sample coffee and see if it’s good. They evaluate the tastes and brightness and aroma…then share their findings. It’s how I know which type of unroasted coffee beans to buy—based on the cupping score. I’m always fascinated hearing about these…

You’re Going Out of Style

Did you know Hillsong United released a remixed techno album? I actually enjoy it. Then this Tuesday, Jesus Culture is releasing their own remixed techno album. Dubstep worship. Interesting. I had one worship leader friend say, “If this is where worship is heading, I give up. I’m too old for this.” I think that reflects…

Echo + Echo = Sunday| Mag

I just published the 25th issue of Sunday| Mag on Saturday. Yep, I’ve now been doing this thing for over two years. With the new issue, I launched a redesign. It wasn’t just a facelift. It was in preparation of a new asset joining me in making it happen. On Monday, I welcomed Scott McClellan…
