In this episode of the Productive Pastor, I interview Justin Wise. Justin is a consultant and runs #ThinkDigital. If you ministry is curious about how the digital age matters, Justin is the person to talk too. When I sat down to plan out season 2 I knew I wanted to interview Justin. He was gracious with his time and shares plenty of great information with us. I especially appreciated the conversation about call and what ministry looks like (and doesn't look like) these days.

6 Subtle Things Highly Productive People Do Every Day: Eric Barker
How To Have a Great Weekend
When I first started thinking about productivity I read Laura Vanderkam's "What The Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast." It changed everything. I quickly started reading the rest of her books. My favorite is "What The Most Successful People Do on the Weekend." Go pick both of them up. They are only 2.99 and are really short reads.
Laura's basic premise is weekends need to be planned. I know, some of you are instantly turned off.
Think about it. If you want a great weekend, you need to plan for a great weekend.
Here are three tips to make your weekend great!
1. Find Something Special. Something you can only do on a weekend, with the space you have access too.
2. Find Something Regular. Plan a normal activity, a special breakfast or place you make part of your weekend routine.
3. Find a Way to Build Relationships. This isn't just about you, but about those you love the most. Plan a great weekend that fills everyone up.
