What’s Killing YOUR Productivity?
Meet Your Sheep
You may not have actual sheep like Solomon’s audience 2,500 years ago. But, you do have a flock of “P.R.I.O.R.” commitments: Projects, Responsibilities, Ideas, Opportunities, and Relationships. For these God will hold you accountable and reward you (2 Cor. 5:10). Therefore, “knowing the condition of your flocks and giving careful attention to your herds” is of critical importance to you.
We had great content, great traffic and a HUGE technical malfunction that left a lot of you hanging – THANK YOU, for your patience!
This week, if the Lord wills, we’d like to give you another opportunity to answer the question “How can I make every day count?”

Martin Luther is often quoted:
“there are only two days on my calendar: today and that day [we come before Christ].”
Bring That Day to the Kineo Leader’s Conference:
GTD Training, Atlanta
We’re on a Mission!
Clearly, God is using this story to change the hearts and minds of a whole lot of people. We’ve been invited to present it to a pastor’s conference next month. These are pastors from all over the US trying to reach unchurched people in a country where more and more people are not professing Christians: America. We can help. But, we need your help.
Mission Driven? Mission Given.
We need to cover some costs without raising the burden on these pastors and their churches. It will take about $750 to bring That Day to this conference and we don’t want mission driven givers to miss out on an opportunity to give where it counts.
If we can raise this support before February 7th, we’ll have a shot at bringing That Day to these pastors and eventually, hundreds in their churches and communities, who will impact thousands around them. To support this effort, give to the That Day fund here.
What We’re Seeing That Day Do:
- to laughter, tears, or both
- some to action
- and a few… to the altar.
“…powerful and sobering. It gave me a new perspective & it challenged me.” Y.M., Dawsonville, GA“Engaging, funny and very touching. I was in tears often, in good and bad ways.” L.F., Alpharetta
Three Things Jesus Will Say:
- “Away from me, I never knew you.”
- “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
- “Away from me”s to “welcome”
- “Welcome”s to “Well done!” and
- “Well done”s to maximum rewards and glory for Christ.

Two Kinds of People – Which Are You?
Some of you are really active people – you do a lot of stuff. Others are highly productive people – you get a lot of stuff done. But, I firmly assert that God doesn’t want either. I believe God doesn’t want us to settle for merely doing more stuff. He calls us to something better: getting the right stuff done in His power and His timing with right motives. How about you? Comment below.
You can be in one place alone: on track or off track. If you’re on track, good for you. Just know you have an enemy who wants you off track and will do all in his power to get you there. The great news is, God has an order and a power (grace) designed to get you back on track every time you’re off. The most productive people have plans in place designed to help them get back on track as quickly and often as possible. Are you one of them?
This week, I’m offering a free webinar under the Clean Slate banner: “Re:gaining Productivity”. So, whether you’ve lost momentum or just want help keeping it, I’m here to partner with you in the process with biblical solutions to real world problems.
Is that worth 45 minutes of your time? What I’m covering hasn’t just changed my life, it’s helping people, churches and businesses keep the main thing the main thing. If that’s important to you, click here and register for Thursday’s webinar.
At the end of last year, I invited over 300 people to share with me what areas of life they’d like to see “under control” for 2017. That is to say, under God’s control moving forward… The response was quite revealing, candid, and telling. Below is the chart with your responses.
- Top 4 drives for change: greater bible engagement, and control over inbox, worry, and overcommitment.
Well, if we get the first one right, the other three tend to fall into place. Vision drives it all and knowing God should be the center of our vision. If our focus time with God is on point and the other areas don’t fall into place, we’re a lot more at ease/at peace with the things that don’t fall into place, true?
We have suggestions and help for those seeking answers, accountability, and tools, but we’re holding them for those bold enough to say “I’m serious.” So, if you want to grow in those areas, reach out and we’ll develop a battle plan to go the distance with you.

On Sunday night – January 22nd – Dr. Michael Adams will be hosting the next That Day performance at Holy Trinity Christian Church here in Alpharetta, GA. We’d love for you to see the latest update of the show.
It’s really exciting to see not just how people react to the show, but how the story is changing how they live their lives, share their faith, live their faith, and engage with both God and the people around them. I caught up with a team of pastors and asked them how the story impacted them and their church and the way they described how That Day changed their staff, church, and community included words like “urgency”, “motivated”, “engaged” and “vigilant”.
Sometimes people hear about a play or a one man show and think “Oh, that’s nice. Good luck with that. You’ll do great.” They miss the point.
Others really grasp the concept that we’re sharing a living parable that resonates with people and transforms their faith, keep coming back and inviting friends.
We hope you’ll be among the many that understand That Day is part of a process of understanding God’s vision for our lives, developing a strategy to accomplish it, and executing that strategy regularly until His return to us or our return to Him.
I recommend you come join us for a great evening at HTCC. Share this video with your friends, coworkers, small group, family, etc., buy your tickets online or at the door, and be there on the 22nd at 7PM. It’s a Sunday night and it’s right here in Alpharetta off exits 11 & 12, convenient to Cumming, Alpharetta, Johns Creek & Suwanee. Don’t miss the updated, faith shaping, life changing story!
