Update as of 12/19/2016. The Not Just One More Thing: Spiritual Growth for Busy People is no longer my free give-away course. It has been expanded and turned into a 10-week video course available over at my online classroom, The Apprenticeship Lab. If what you read here sounds interesting, head over and check it out.
Busyness is the enemy of spiritual growth. Busyness is a trap, mindset, a wall of self-defense, an addiction. Busyness is about lack of focus and confused priorities. At least that’s what they say. Surely there’s something true about all of that.
