Over the last few months I have wanted to get back into blogging for multiple reasons but I knew that I needed to have a purpose if I was going to do it. Initially the drive to blog was to hold myself accountable to learning and sharing what I learn. I believe strongly that when we have learned something in order for it to be solidified in our minds we need to share it with others. As a result my thoughts about this blog were all over the place.
Then I started asking myself, “who am I?” and “what do I have to offer?” It hit me that I’m an average guy, which can sound kind of lame, but the truth is most of us are average guys. We work a job, we’re married, maybe have kids but overall we are your everyday Joe’s.
I may be an average person but like most of you I want to be excellent. I want to be an excellent follower of Christ, an excellent husband, an excellent father and a excellent leader where I have influence.
To be great spouses, parents and leaders is a noble and worthy pursuit. With all the day to day pressures and distractions it can be easy to lose our focus and get side-tracked. If we are going to be excellent we need help and encouragement to stay on course.
My goal is to be a resource and encouragement as we pursue excellence as spouses, parents and leaders.
So if you are like me, an average person striving to be an excellent spouse, parent and leader then check things out and join me in this journey. Please share your thoughts and let me know what would be helpful for you in your pursuit of excellence.
