Change Coming

There is a change coming to the frequency of my posts, but also the content and quality.

I don't know what this means yes, or looks like yet. So here are my thoughts... raw and semi-unfiltered.

I've grown tired or writing one post a week that is all nice and formula driven. I could not care much less about Google traffic or the business of blogging. If no-one ever reads this blog... I want to keep writing it for myself. Express my ideas as they come... than after a period of time those ideas will fertilize and grow into something new.

No more posts that all look alike.

No more pretty packages, or attempts at them.

I am inspired to write more like Seth Godin... big today, small tomorrow, what comes as it comes. I think that's one of the reason I like reading Seth, he's an ideas guy.

Ideas and Concepts


I recently Discovered, that one of my core themes is that I am an Ideas and Concepts person. I'm not always the one who will execute those ideas and concepts, I need to partner with that person. My wife is a Developer (concerned with what is, and the potential one has - real and present), I'm an Ideation person (concerned with what could be - theoretical and abstract).

I want to ask questions that I don't have the answer to yet, just to get the question out there and let it percolate. I am a fellow traveler, seeking answers myself, not a sage with all the answers. I'm willing to learn from you? I'd love to ask some questions and have YOU tell me some things that help us together find the answers.

The world of questions and ideas and concepts and abstracts is the world I thrive in. It's why I'm bother by most schools now. They are teaching kids answers to tests, instead of teaching them how to think and explore ideas. I'd like to see more philosophy in schools were the teacher NEVER gives the answer, not even by the end of class, but only teaches the kids how to explore the questions and ask more questions.

My posts grew boring to me, because I think, unintentionally, I was trying to be the sage instead of the traveler.


Expect the Unexpected

My new goal: Inconsistency!

Really?!

Yes!

If I am growing, learning, pushing the boundaries of thought, life, mind, and spirit... It will by nature require inconsistency.

What do I mean?

If I think the same way a year from now, that I do today... I have failed. I stopped pushing the mental, spiritual, and emotional limits of my mind and spirit. I MUST grow, and to grow I MUST change. I must be allowed to post something today, and then two weeks from now post something that contradicts that first post.

This contradiction may come from me learning more about that topic, growing in maturity, or simply disagreeing with my earlier self.

I want to post my thoughts as they come, not after proper filtering. I want to be free to post once this week, and 6 times the next week. Raw. Unfiltered. Inconsistent. As It Comes...

If THAT is not the journey you signed up for... I understand, please remove yourself from the mailing list, or take me off of your RSS feed. If, however, that sounds like fun... welcome to the journey.

What are some of the life questions YOU would like to explore? Comment on this post to tell us?


Inconsistency: Here I come...



In other words... will I #BeStillBeLed?

Foundations Class #2 Levels of Change

Foundations Class #2Levels of ChangeBob HampClass can be seen on GatewayPeople.ComStarts with two stories...1. True Story. He had driven out to help his aunt who had a flat tire. He used a metric lug wrench on an American car, it wouldn't work so he forced it, stripping out all the lugs. He used the wrong tools to try to fix the problem and trying harder made it worse.

2. Potty Training Parable. You have an infant and shortly after you realize that the child needs his/her diaper changed. So you change it and it gets dirty again, and you change it, and it gets dirty again... Constant change but nothing changes. Then you get a higher order of change. Potty training. Once the child is potty trained you no longer have to change the messes anymore. A higher order of change has over-ridden the former things.
It is this type of change we are referring to with "Levels" of change. Not levels as in: When I pass 1st grade I will be in 2nd grade. It's not linear change, progressiv…

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Introduction In the beginning, the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. (Immerse, 2017) John, page 399 
Notice that John begins his gospel by calling Jesus, The Word. We find Words, and the stories they create for us, impact us at a level that is beyond our cognitive ability to understand in the moment. Being caught up in a story can make you lose all sense of present, and be transported to another time and place (and sometimes another world entirely).

Ever since Aristotle observed that stories had a beginning, a middle, and an end, the science of story has been developed and studied. Our modern sensibilities tell us at a gut level whether a story “works” or i…

Reflection Paper: Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis

Reflections of Mere Christianity
This is a reflection paper of the text Mere Christianity (Lewis, 1952, 1980). The content was first delivered as radio broadcast material between 1942-1944 by Clive Staples “CS” Lewis. Lewis then gathered the materials and published them as three sperate works, later combining and editing the text that became Mere Christianity. With the mind of a scholar and the mouth of a layman, Lewis takes us through the various topics that affect our lives as Christians and provides practical break-downs of how we are to treat each topic, supplemented by a host of modern parallels and parables. He is careful not to take any position that is not laid solidly in the Word of God, leaving those positions that are controversial within the Church either without an opinion or a well-deserved analysis of each side. However, far from a dry treatment of theology, Lewis gives us a laugh through each turn as he cuts through the heady stuff for the “why behind” each discussion…
