DEEP WORK

Soon I will be interviewing Cal Newport on his terrific book, Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World http://www.amazon.com/Deep-Work-Focused-Success-Distracted/dp/1455586692

Cal teaches computer science at Georgetown and has written a book underscoring the type of work which is increasingly rare and thus valuable.  One example can be found in blacksmith, Ric Furrer.  The care and integrity of Ric’s work is amazing.  I wonder what it would look like if Christians read their Bibles and studied with such care.

TOUGHEST JOBS

According to Peter Drucker, the late leadership guru, the four hardest jobs in America (and not necessarily in order, he added) are the president of the United States, a university president, a CEO of a hospital and … a pastor.
