Everyone who has ever lived or died had a purpose to fulfill. Everyone has dreams of the future and regrets of the past. But it’s how we live our life that determines our purpose for tomorrow.
When I look or walk through a grave yard I see one thing; countless untold stories, unwritten books, unsung songs, new ideas that have never been formed, or adventures never taken. It breaks my heart when someone doesn’t live to the full potential that God has placed within their lives.

Everyone encounters fear at one point in their life, or another. But when it comes to writing, fear can hold you back from making a difference in someone’s life.

As a writer and blogger I have to be selective of the tools I use to conduct my business. With sermons, a podcast, this blog and books I need a tool that will help me get the job done. Yet, sometimes tools simply get in the way and out of control.
In today’s episode I want give you 5 reasons I have switched to using Evernote for all my blogging. I knew I needed an app that would change how I write. Basically, I just wanted to write my posts whenever and where ever. With Word it’s not easy. With DeskPM it’s impossible and Scrivener again, impossible.

Most people think about writing a book. Few ever accomplish it. But if you’ve never written a book, I encourage you to get yours written today.
For years I wanted to write a book and become a famous author. While I may not be famous, I have written two books; Divine Providence, Grace and a short ebook. These books have opened doors for me that I never thought possible.
Facebook, Twitter and you name it social media is all the rage. People feel empowered to share what they want, when they want. But is that how we should be living our lives?
In today’s episode, we’ll be looking at the dangers of posting what we want, versus lifting people up. As leaders, our job is to encourage and empower people to succeed in life. If you truly want to have a voice that people will listen to, you can’t post what you want.
There is one thing that plagues everyone; that one thing is procrastination. There isn’t a problem with it until it stops you from being productive. And everyone knows productivity is the king of getting more done in less time.
Think about your next big project. It has to get done, but you simply don’t want to use your resources on it at this moment. It’s fine to procrastinate every once and a while. But a problem arises when we realize we now have to kill ourselves to accomplish that project on time.

Do you have a message on your heart that the world needs to hear? There’s one way to make that happen, and you can start today for cheap. That one thing, podcasting. Whether you’re an author, pastor or entrepreneur, podcasting is right for you. You don’t have to have a large audience to start, you can begin today.

As a writer, I have to be conscious about my thoughts before I begin to write. If you don’t have a clear idea of what you’re going to write, your post will sink without a ripple. Some writers I’ve talked to think you don’t need to, just write and it will be okay.
For some bloggers, it’s difficult to categorize, or even tag. I know this is something that I’ve struggled with over the years. Maybe you’re saying with each post, I don’t know what tag or category to place this post in.
