Steps or Die

I have become less and less inclined to read books that offer a handful of steps, no matter how practical, to success in a given area. Each author promising a series of baby steps divinely guaranteed to make a better: marriage, family, vocation, hobby, home, side hustle, writing style, blog, website, education, sex life, dating relationship, discipleship rhythm, faith journey...


And you know what? Many of these experienced authors and creators and equippers have some really good contextual advice. And they're sharing it! This is fantastic.


But sometimes it's good to simply sit back and look at a painting, walk through the forest or the city streets, read a non-fiction adventure or listen to a record without each step of the artist's journey propped up like a beacon. Sometimes the enjoyment of creating action steps in life is the quiet and slow discovery tucked within a story or a song or a painting or a podcast.


Sure, if we don't take steps to grow and mature and move in faith we'll wither and die. But sometimes a key part of our movement is finding that hidden gem. Are you?
