    THE WORKAHOLIC SOLUTION

    Autopilot, by Andrew Smart

    Quotes from Smart:

    Our long-standing “idlephobia” has lead inexorably to our current near-obsession with busyness.
    In the short term, busyness destroys creativity, self-knowledge, emotional well-being, your ability to be social – and it can damage your cardiovascular health.
    True insight, whether artistic or scientific, emotional or social, can really only occur in these all-too-rare idle states.
    Allowing the brain to rest opens the system to exploiting these mechanisms of nonlinearity and randomness, and amplifies the brain’s natural tendency to combine percepts and memories into new concepts.
    Doing nothing actually makes your brain function better.
    Western society has instilled in us a belief that every moment of every day must be filled with activity. Indeed, it is almost a moral obligation in the US to be as busy as possible. I will try to show that for certain things the brain like to do you may need to be doing very little.
    Modern technology can literally make us dumber.
    On the contrary, when you leave important parts of your brain unattended by relaxing in the grass on a sunny afternoon, the parts of your brain in the default mode network become more organized and engaged.

    The Problem of Burnout in Your Life, Part 1

    in Christianity

    Our passage from the Word of God today is Matthew 11:28–30. It reads, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."


    Our quote for today is from Sam Storms. He said, “You weren't created for boredom or burnout or bondage to sexual lust or greed or ambition but for the incomparable pleasure and matchless joy that knowing Jesus alone can bring. Only then, in Him, will you encounter the life-changing, thirst-quenching, soul-satisfying delight that God, for His glory, created you to experience.”


    Our problem today is "The Problem of Burnout in Your Life" (part 1) from the book, "The Guide to Biblical Counseling" by Dr. Tim Clinton and Dr. Ron Hawkins. 


    - Western culture continue to push the limits, has become increasingly obsessed with the “pursuit of excellence,” and burnout has reached epidemic proportions, even within the church.


    - Burnout is a stressful state characterized by physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion, chronic fatigue, and lethargy.

    The 100 Dates Challenge

    in Self Help

    At Fantasy Dating, we're all about daring to date. That's why we're psyched to talk to Jen H., a 31 year old, single, self-described workaholic living in LA. She's challenged herself with the ultimate dare - to go on 100 dates!


    When asked, "Why 100 dates?" Jen replies, "Because it has to get better. I kid (kind of), but I think it’s really easy for people to be scared and negative about dating and about the opposite sex and just sit idly by. I never want to be that person. I mean, I’m scared of everything, I’m kind of a nervous person, but I don’t want to let fear dictate my life or my choices. Plus, I know so many great people – so certainly there must be more! I also want to live out of a mindset of abundance rather than scarcity. I want to expect good things."


    We're expecting good things too! Join us on Wednesday, December 2, at 5:00 pm Pacific / 8:00 Eastern as Jen H. tells us about being single in LA, what inspired her to do the 100 dates challenge and what she's learned so far.


    We dare you. After all, you might just learn something too.

    in Spirituality

    TRANSFORMATIONAL CAREER CONSULTANT, AUTHOR & MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER


    In 2004, in full health and at the pinnacle of his life and career, Mark contracted a very serious, penicillin resistant (MRSA) infection from a routine arthroscopy. After a dozen surgeries and forty-one days of lying immobilized in a hospital bed, Mark experienced a life-changing encounter with what he can only describe as the “Divine.” He communed with a presence that revealed to him that his life purpose is to help and heal others. From this epiphany, Mark developed an intense interest in spirituality and spent the next 10-years studying and working with spiritual leaders. Interest turned to inspiration when Mark realized that he could do the most good by mentoring business professionals using his 25-years of successful corporate and entrepreneurial experience, Harvard MBA and coaching training. He decided to transition out of the corporate world and founded C-Synergy, LLC to help both people to get clear on their purpose and calling, to develop manageable action plans and to connect and operate from their inner wisdom.


    Mark’s mission is to help people tune into their inner genius and to unleash the creativity, joy and energy found in living in alignment to purpose and exercising personal passion. Mark believes that businesses and the people who create and run them hold the ultimate answer to the many crisis’ facing our planet today. He would like to see the corporations that lay claim to the majority of the world’s assets to be led by men and women connected to their higher consciousness so that they make decisions from a mindset of oneness, abundance and love instead of scarcity, fear and greed.

    Reader's Entertainment Radio Presents: ReShonda Tate Billingsley

    in Books

    Don't miss our show this Thursday, November 12th at 6pm EST. My guest will be #1 National Bestselling Author and NAACP Image Award-Winning Author, ReShonda Tate Billingsley. A former news reporter and anchor, who now writes books full-time, ReShonda has penned over 35 books. Her sophomore novel, Let the Church Say Amen, has been made into a movie, directed by actress Regina King and produced by Queen Latifah's Flava Unit, Royal Ties Productions and Bobcat Films.


    Book Blurb:


    When her son is in trouble, a heartbroken mother finds the courage and faith to save him, in ReShonda Tate Billingsley’s powerful family drama—a novel as timely as today’s headlines.

    The breaking TV news rocks Jasper, Texas, to the core: a white police officer is fatally shot in a scuffle with three black youths—and a cellphone video captures Jamal Jones, the sixteen-year-old son of esteemed Reverend Elton Jones, escalating the tragic encounter. Now, as the national spotlight shines on a town already rife with racial tension, Jamal is a murder suspect on the run. And all of Jasper—even the Reverend’s congregation—rushes to judge the boy they thought they knew.

    But Gloria Jones knows her son best, and she races to find Jamal before the law does—to the outrage of her workaholic husband. Once she finds him, she has to decide whether to turn him in or help him run. With ruthless prosecutor and Houston mayoral candidate Kay Christensen hungering to put another young thug behind bars, Gloria will face her biggest battle yet. And when long-hidden secrets and shocking lies come to light, throwing Jamal’s case and his destiny into a tailspin, all Gloria can do is pray that the truth—and a mother’s unconditional love—will be enough to redeem the mistakes of the past and ultimately, save her son.

    Special Guest:  Actor, Producer, Director & Writer "Donald James Parker".  In 2006, I was a workaholic computer programmer who didn't know a lot about what was going on in the world. Then God intervened. I awoke at exactly 2:00 AM with the sensation that I'd heard a voice saying "Write a book about evolution." I was not a writer and didn't know much about evolution. I just went back to sleep. In the morning I awoke and remembered that experience and went to prayer asking, "Lord, did you ask me to write a book about evolution last night?"  Since then I have written 20 books, mostly involving evolution, the occult, and the sexual revolution.  I've written and co-written several movie scripts and have produced seven of the scripts as feature films.  I have my own Blogtalk Radio show, Wielding the Sword of the Spirit, where I interview people in the entertainment industry and in ministry - or preferably in both.
