The Blog

My phone dings and my computer pings. I have a new Email and once again I am tempted to check it.

Junk.

Now I lost my focus.

Rinse and repeat.

This happens all too much during my day. I could stop checking my Email, but that could make me unreliable to those who need my response.

3 Tips for Getting Rid of Unwanted Emails

1. Use unroll.me to help you cut back on unwanted Emails. I used once and it did a pretty good job. You give the Web site access to your account and it searches for emails you may want to unsubscribe from. You choose what you get rid of. It didn’t remove 100% of my junk, but it took care of a lot and it was quick.

2. If you don’t want give someone or something access to your Email, then you can just go to your Email’s search feature and search “unsubscribe.” It will find all the Emails in your account that will give you the option to unsubscribe manually. It is time consuming, but it does narrow your junk down.

3. Stop Emailing and write letters. Just kidding. There are many other applications and Web sites that claim to help and many of them you can pay for. The first two options are free.

There have been many times when I wished I had a blog to share my thoughts, ideas, and prayers. There have been a few times that I have set out to do so, but today is the day that it happens.

So it is a little weird starting a blog. With that said… where do you start? Not many, if anyone is going to read this post right away (hi mom). So with little to no audience, where do you start? What do you write about?

The only way that this site will be a blessing to me and to others is if I am consistent.

This thought about consistency is also an example of how consistency is valuable to Christians and youth leaders. We can be successful is if we are consistent.  Webster’s dictionary defines consistent to be “free from variation or contradiction” and “showing steady conformity to character.”

Consistency in my Christian walk has never been more important than when many eyes are looking at me as a spiritual leader.

 

I believe consistency is arguably one of the most important characteristics of a leader.

More later… I just pray that I can be consistent.
