Have you ever heard of a website called “Linked In?”  It’s the 21st century equivalent to a resume.  If all the changes in life leave you with your head spinning as you travel Your High-Tech Journey to a Linked-In World, this series of posts is for you. I hope you’ll Join me as I talk about deciding what you want from the journey.

Today, I unveiled something I’m calling “Your High Tech Journey to a Linked In World.” Along the way, I will talk about my struggles to learn and apply a myriad of technology tools that didn’t even exist when I was going to school. But I don’t want this to be a series of disjointed “tech tips” that you can get anywhere. Instead, I want to take a step back, look at the story of my life, and see how I came to learn the things I’ve learned, how I’ve set goals for myself, and then applied the things I learned to help me achieve my goals.

So, before we can strike out on this “high-tech journey to a linked-in world,” it makes sense to me to think about some “low-tech” skills that we all as regular people need to apply. Something my wife calls “common sense and logic.”

And so, in this first “Journey Step,” I talked about identifying your goals in life, and identifying one or more skills you use to achieve your goals. As I have thought about this for my life, Please review the accompanying image.  Here’s my encouragement for you:  See if you can create a similar matrix for yourself like the one I made for me.

Here is a bible verse I memorized a long time ago, and I think it fits well with the topic of Deciding What You Want from the Journey:  

Isaiah 32:8:  But the noble man devises noble plans; And by noble plans he stands. 

Today, I promised to provide you a resource.  I’d like to offer you my course, Think Like Jesus, Lead Like Moses.  Just click on this link.

Journey #6: God Desires to Expand Your Comfort Zone

Journey #6: God Desires to Expand Your Comfort Zone

How has God forced you to get out of your comfort zone? Perhaps through corporate downsizing that required you to learn new skills? I believe God designs circumstances that change our attitudes about things. These changed attitudes then guide the actions we take in response to our new circumstances. If we follow His leading, He will prepare us for our mission from God.

Face the Future with Faith, Not Fear

Face the Future with Faith, Not Fear

Stepping out in faith to take ownership of my work exposed me to new opportunities. To be honest, while I never made much money with my newsletter, it in turn led to still other opportunities. From that experience, I learned to face the future with faith, not fear.
