In this episode, you'll hear John Ortberg, Senior Pastor of Menlo Church, share why soul keeping is essential for leaders.

Episode Summary:

  • Hurry is different than business. Busyness is an outward condition of the body, having many things to do. Hurry is a condition of the soul, when we are so preoccupied with ourselves and our tasks that we are unable to truly be present.
  • What does it look like to ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life?
  • Bring people around you to hold you accountable
  • Be intentional with your calendar
  • So much of eliminating our rushing and hurry comes as a result of mastering our need to be liked, loved, and accomplished.
  • To take care of your soul, you have to know the different parts of it and how those parts should function.
  • Our temptations are always close to our goals and aspirations.
  • Be willing to live with, and simply be content with, the outcomes. We certainly learn from outcomes, but we don't have to let it affect our confidence.
  • The main thing that matters to God is the person you become. Your life to God is not a resume, it's about who you are in the end.
