The Job of a Lifetime

Posted by Regi Campbell on September 4, 2017

I read this the other day in an article from CBS MoneyWatch . . . “Of the country’s approximately 100 million full-time employees, 51 percent aren’t engaged at work – meaning they feel no real connection to their jobs, and thus they tend to do the bare minimum. Another 16 percent are ‘actively disengaged’ – they…

Your Third Word

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 25, 2017

My latest Radical Mentoring group is tackling the topic of purpose. Specifically, life purpose statements. Identity asks, “Who am I?” Mission asks, “What do I want?” Purpose asks, “Why am I here?” The stock answer for Jesus-followers is “I’m here to glorify God” which is 100% true, but doesn’t speak to my unique purpose. Anne…

There is No Heavier Burden Than a Great Opportunity

Posted by Regi Campbell on December 15, 2016

Years ago, someone bought a bunch of billboards on an interstate we travel often. With no reference to a company or a cause, the billboards simply said . . . “There is no heavier burden than a great opportunity.” Obviously that struck me. What is my heavy burden? I don’t want to miss out on my great…

This is my 500th blog post on the Radical Mentoring blog (550th overall). Twice a week, we load up your inbox or your browser with five or six hundred words. The other day, someone said, “Regi, some of those devotions you send out are pretty good.” Smacked me in the mouth. A devotional was never…

Time is of the Essence

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 11, 2016

Our whole existence revolves around time. It’s behind our busyness, our drive to perform, our difficulty focusing. Almost all stress is time-induced. The things we stress over would be less stressful if we had more time. Everything is in a hurry. We’re constantly afraid to run out of time. Just read the story of Lazarus…

Part-Timers

Posted by Regi Campbell on March 10, 2016

Organizations of all types have flocked to part-time employees. To management, they offer flexibility and lower cost, in part because they typically don’t get benefits. It works well for the part-time employee too. Less duty hours and more freedom to do other things. Many Christians have become part-time Christ-followers. They get the flexibility of choosing which parts…

The Perfect Swing

Posted by Kevin Harris on October 22, 2015

In his book, The Boys of Summer, which chronicled the Brooklyn Dodgers of the 1950’s, Roger Kahn describes the swing of George “Shotgun” Shuba, a bench player, as being as “so compact that it appeared as natural as a smile.” When Kahn mentions this to him, Shuba responds by pulling out a notebook and describing…

As I was reading a little Donald Miller the other day, I came across this . . . “Nearly 80 years ago a psychologist named Viktor Frankl stood up to Sigmund Freud. Freud was saying that the primary desire of man was to pursue pleasure, but Frankl disagreed. He said the primary desire of every person was to…

Recently my friend John (again) took out his ipad and started drawing and writing. And I (again) started taking notes. This time, he explained motivation…the range of motivation we either enjoy or are cursed by (He credits Ken Blanchard for coming up with this). Here’s the range, from bottom to top….. • Guiltless lethargy –…

Why I Write This Blog

I’m reading a book about vulnerability. Brene’ Brown did a TED talk about this. The talk went viral and over 10 million people watched it. Now she’s written a book, Daring Greatly, which says the ‘secret sauce’ to living a wholehearted life is being vulnerable. Laying it out there. Holding nothing back. So I decided…
