October, 2017, as I was leaving the Red Letter offices, I had an unfortunate accident that left me incapacitated and unable to sustain the work of Red Letter. I cannot thank our team, candidates and clients enough for the time we had together. I’m happy we were able to be a small part of your bigger life story. Your best days are ahead!
It’s been a minute since I’ve posted on any of my social media channels. When the accident happened, I was unable to do anything without a lot of help, much less social media. Now, nearly two years later, I still need help, but I also I want to rethink my relationship with social media before i jump back into it.
Cal Newport’s book Digital Minimalism sums it up pretty well, “Minimalism is the art of knowing how much is just enough. Digital minimalism applies this idea to our personal technology. It’s the key to living a focused life in an increasingly noisy world.”
My pastor says, “The more you focus on something, the bigger it gets in your eyes.” With the time I have left on this planet, I want to laser-focus on my big family, significant relationships, and reaching the world with good news. Oh, and maybe write a book.
I knew the second I went to put my foot on the lobby floor that something was painfully wrong. I had missed a couple of stairs and I was airborne Two thoughts raced through my mind, your life will be changed forever and you will not make it out of this alive. The next thing I heard was my leg exploding as I slammed into the concrete floor. After 21 ridiculously slow months, I’m still recovering and the rest of the story is still being written. I’ve titled a potential book WTFGOD and I hope it gets written.
