Where To Now?

Life is a journey. We grow over the years. A common biblical analogy is from agriculture to display the passing of time and the fullness of time.

That’s where a planted seed is germinating underground, but we can’t see it. Then it sprouts and matures where we can see its growth.

What am I even talking about?

I’ve been on vacation for a week and a half, and as I tend to do, I reflect. One of the things I’ve been thinking of is the direction of the blog.

I read a book (shocker) titled From Good to Great, about what makes great companies great. What are the common denominators?

One idea I latched onto was called the Hedgehog Concept. To discover it, you have to ask:

  1. What am I passionate about?
  2. What can I be the best at?
  3. How can it pay for itself/how can I measure it?

I ran through the first two questions. Not the last one. I tried that before when it was on a private server — complete fail.

Any money will come from books if I decide to sell them rather than give them away.

What am I passionate about?

Simple. Learning a lot of things. Observing. Theology. I read 60 books last year, only three were fiction. I listen to podcasts dealing with a variety of topics when I run or drive.

What can I be the best at?

I can’t be the best at learning or teaching others how to learn. Scott Young has that niche with Ultralearning.

Teaching theology? Definitely not the best at that. I’m just a theology nerd/lay “scholar.”

So what then?

Living a life immersed in Christian theology and messianic eschatology. I just learned that last one, and I’m still not sure what that term means.

What I can do well is write about what it looks like in action and thought as I work through it.

Can I be the best? I don’t know. I’m not sure who else is doing it. I am the only me, so I’ll have that unique twist. We’ll see how this works out.
