Mind Dump 04-17-08

  • Bro. Higginbotham reviews the project planning process…My project reviews, derived from a good friend, Rob, can be accomplished during a single meeting, usually an hour in duration. Every team member, along with other leaders and teams that were involved with the project, should attend. Have a large whiteboard or writing pad available, along with plenty of whiteboard pens. Designate a recorder – someone who has nice handwriting – to record notes during the meeting. The recorder, or another attendee, should be given the task of typing in the notes and distributing them after the meeting is complete (don’t type them up during the meeting, as that will be too distracting). (via agile ministry)
  • Are you an interactive preacher? Since the New Media alters traditional models of mass communication, we must radically review the ways we interact and communicate with others.  The Church, as a primary vehicle for communicating the Good News, stands to amplify it’s voice by using the interactive attributes found in the new media. (via leadership network)
  • Master Drucker on leadership…Successful leaders don’t start out asking, “What do I want to do?” They ask, “What needs to be done?” Then they ask, “Of those things that would make a difference, which are right for me?” They don’t tackle things they aren’t good at. They make sure other necessities get done, but not by them. Successful leaders make sure that they succeed! They are not afraid of strength in others. Andrew Carnegie wanted to put on his gravestone, “Here lies a man who knew how to put into his service more able men than he was himself.” (via forbes)
  • Amen brother…It happened again the other day! The conversation was going so well. I was actually kind of surprised when the person I was talking to (who I was meeting for the first time) just had to go there. Now, there was no way this guy could have known that the pastor he was about to slander was a pretty good friend of mine. So I think it threw him for a loop when I stopped him mid-sentence and served notice:
    “I really don’t want to continue this conversation. The pastor you’re speaking against is a great man of God. You don’t even know him, I know him and care for him a whole lot. So I think it would be beneficial to both of us for you to stop maligning his character right now. I don’t want to hear it.” (via steven furtick)
