A couple of weeks ago, David & I talked about “moving the needle” in one of my favorite episodes of Focused to date. David shared his system for making sure the things he was getting done were in fact the right things, and it got me thinking about what happens after you identify what moves the needle for you.[Read more…]
Purposeful productivity is not a destination, it’s a journey. You’ll never fully arrive at it, but it is indeed a worthwhile pursuit. That is why I created Faith-Based Productivity to help people who are on their own purposeful productivity journey connect to their calling, discover their destiny, and live the life they were created for.
I’ve seen the excitement and passion that comes when someone truly attaches to their God-given mission, but you need to learn how to see it first. God’s plan for your life is bigger and better than anything you can imagine – you just need to see it and connect to it. Once you do, your life will never be the same.
Faith-Based Productivity is the culmination of my years of experience teaching productivity filtered through the lens of my Bible College degree. I’ve spent quite a bit of time connecting tactical productivity advice to the Biblical principles the advice is based on, and result is a video course that walks you through 3 separate modules:
- Purpose, which is all about understanding your mission,
- Vision, where I help you bring clarity to the dream God has given you, and
- Hustle, where I teach tactics you can use to push past procrastination and help you stick with things – when you don’t feel like it.
The course itself won’t straight-out tell you what your unique purpose and abilities are. No course can do that. But Faith-Based Productivity will help point you in the right direction and help you ask the right questions so that you can find the answers you’re looking for and discover your purpose for yourself. And when you do connect to your calling, life looks quite a bit different. Imagine:
- Being able to see with clarity the vision God has for your life
- Having confidence from knowing you are in the will of God for your life
- Making the most of the time and talents you’ve been given after learning how to be a good steward of what God has entrusted to you
- Finding your “why” and using it to accomplish more than you ever thought possible
- Eliminating the things that are holding you back from living your best life
For a God-anointed man or woman with a God-given purpose, anything is possible. I wholeheartedly believe that you were made for amazing things. You have a purpose that only you can fulfill. And I’d be honored to assist you on your journey.
Faith-Based Productivity is intentionally not like most other online courses. Depending on your perspective, that is either a strength or a weakness.
The course doesn’t give you a 5-step formula for reaching your full potential. It can’t straight-out tell you what your unique purpose and abilities are (no one can). But the course will help point you in the right direction and get you asking the right questions, helping you to uncover your unique talents and abilities.
By understanding your own passions and skills, you can connect to your “why” and live the life God meant for you to live. This course will help you discover the will of God for your life and leverage whatever resources you possess to push past an average existence and do something awesome – no matter where you are or what you have when you start. But it’s still up to you to do the work.
One of the questions I get asked frequently is, “do I have to believe the Bible to go benefit from Faith-Based Productivity?” The short answer is no, though I do use scripture references frequently to support my ideas so if you’re turned off by religious conversation than the course probably isn’t for you. But there are many people from many different faith backgrounds who have gone through the course and benefitted from the material. Here’s a testimonial from an atheist who went through the course:
“Wow, what can I say! Faith-Based Productivity was just amazing. As an atheist, I had my reservations that I was only going to be converted or told that in order to be productive I must follow the Lord. Sure there are lots of references to this and plenty of bible passages, but I found that a lot of them made sense and I could easily relate.” – Michael M, Australia
Faith-Based Productivity is for people who are serious about making the most of the life they’ve been given. But it’s definitely not for everybody. If you’re looking for 5 quick life hacks to save you 30 minutes per day or how to get to inbox zero, you won’t find that here. What you will find are mental models backed by scripture that will help you ask the right questions.
Here’s who should NOT sign up for Faith-Based Productivity:
- If you are put off by discussion of spiritual things, Faith-Based Productivity isn’t for you. I share quite a bit of my personal story, and my Christian faith is a big part of that. If you will be offended by someone sharing their personal views about religion and how it influences productivity, you won’t like this course.
- If you are unwilling to wrestle with some difficult questions, Faith-Based Productivity isn’t for you. Since the purpose of this course is to help you connect to your calling, discover your destiny, and live the life you were created for, it digs deeper than some people may be comfortable.
- If you want a quick fix and aren’t willing to apply yourself, Faith-Based Productivity isn’t for you. You won’t get much out of the course is you’re not willing to follow through with it. The course asks some tough questions, and it’s likely you’ll have to spend some time wrestling with them in order to get the full benefit.
- If you are set in your beliefs and don’t like being challenged, Faith-Based Productivity isn’t for you. The goal of the course is to get you to see yourself through the lens of potential, which requires that you think bigger about your future – and your abilities.
- If you don’t have a growth mindset, Faith-Based Productivity isn’t for you. Faith-Based Productivity will encourage you to try somethings that are new, and you may fail. So if you are scared of failure and unwilling to learn from it, this course will make you VERY uncomfortable.
However, if you:
- Want to reach your full potential
- Have a desire to do something significant with your life
- Want to see with clarity the vision God has for your life
- Desire to make a difference
- Are looking to infuse passion into what you do
- Want to make the most of the time and talent that you’ve been given
… then Faith-Based Productivity is for you.

I know, I know – you’ve seen this before. Except not really. The development of Faith-Based Productivity has taken some unexpected turns the last couple of months. Today I want to share with you the short story of what exactly it is and how we got here.
It’s been said that for a writer, nothing is as intimidating as a blank paage. But the author of today’s book says that doesn’t have to be the case. Click here to join Joe & I as we look at how to take better notes and automate the writing process.
I’m a big advocate of productivity. But I’m not a big fan of how most people approach the topic.
Productivity is not cranking more widgets. Productivity is not doing all the things. True productivity is saying “no” to the things that don’t matter so you can say “YES!” to the things that do.
But that’s not what most people think of when they hear the word “productivity.” They conjure up a mental image of heartless efficiency – getting their tasks done faster so they can squeeze in a few more from the never-ending in their task manager.[Read more…]
