Are You Doing It?

Are you continuing to learn the very thing: the subject, the form, the technique, the data, the procedures, the healthiest rhythm of life, faith and creative habits - for your end goal?


There are four stages on the I know what I'm good at and I'm passing it on to others who will one day be proficient enough to pass it on as well road to joyfully successful living. Because success in an area isn't just about you and I achieving our goals, but inviting others along for the ride in order to grow and achieve theirs as well. Where are you on this journey?

  1. I do it.

  2. I do it - and you watch.

  3. You do it - and I watch.

  4. You do it.

Are you doing it?


Are you learning, growing and practicing the healthiest version of your creative pursuit? Whether it's writing and seeking out more depth of insight into your writing habits, subject or skills. Or songwriting and reaching out to those in your city and circle of influence who can help you shape your craft as you craft it daily. Or parenting and leaning into parents further along the journey who you trust and trust the fruit of. Do you understand your craft, your values and your mission?


And are you living out the mission toward your goal on a daily basis? Are you living the life of a more engaged mom or dad? Are you making the hard decisions to say NO to the many in order to say YES to the few under your roof? Are you doing the same with writing books, songs, screenplays, business plans, church plants etc?


Are you first doing it and doing it healthy, well, faithfully and with joy?
