This week, as I was traveling and running all over the country I thought, “What would it look like if I took time every week to take my random thoughts, ideas, notes, prayers, and everything else I write down in my journal every week, and build a weekly blogging plan?” Would this help put some structure and balance into my life? Would this help when I was struggling to come up with something to write about?

I was already filling my journal with stuff all week, why not put that stuff to good use? I didn’t want to lose the realness and get to agenda like. But, I did want to make sure all the stuff I was journaling was getting applied and used. A battle went on in my head. Should I build a plan? Should I not build a plan? It went on and on for hours. Then, I thought, “Lets let the journal decide”.

I went back through my journal, and discovered great stuff that got lost in the thick of the journal – this was unacceptable to me. If I was willing to put in all the time during the week, why not take a few hours to put it to use? I figured God gave me those thoughts not to sit in my journal, but to be shared with others. Amen.

After this war went on in my head, and the planner side won, I started thumbing through my journal and putting together a plan for the this upcoming week. I found allot of great thoughts and ideas and I’m really looking forward to sharing and adding value this week.

I’m really thankful for everyone’s support, thoughts, comments, and discussion. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to share with you.

Here is what you can look forward to this week on my blog.

  1. Revival Starts in the home. You may be on top of the world right now, but your home is broken. Your kids are in trouble, your wife is thinking about leaving you, and your family wants nothing to do with you. Revival starts within the home.
  2. Are you mentally tough? I learned what it meant to be mentally tough during my professional racing career. I had amazing trainers that would not only train me physically, but more important mentally. People don’t realize how important it is to be mentally tough.
  3. Living out your brand. What does it mean to live out your brand. Are you really living out your brand? Very few people understand what it means to live out their brands.
  4. Weekly Fasting. I use to fast weekly and it was a huge part of my walk with Christ. I’m starting again. What I’m looking forward to. Why I’m doing it.

Thanks for reading and I hope your looking forward to this week as much as I am. God bless you and have an awesome week!

Question: Have you had a similar experience where you started planning out your weekly blogs? How do you feel about it? Has it helped you?

    It depends on the week for me. Sometimes I have a lot of ideas for blogs, so I write them down and “assign” them to certain days I would like to see them posted. Sometimes I don’t get ideas until the day of the post.

    I am a planner, so I like knowing in advance what I’m going to write about, but I think the blog is teaching me how to go more with the flow. And I like it.

    • Jason, I would agree with you that it depends on the week. I’m really
      working towards making sure that I execute all my ideas, or what Seth
      Godin calls “ship it”. I hope you are well.
