Discover The Book

Last week I finished one of the best books on parenting and family that I’ve read of late, entitled “The Joy of a Word-Filled Family” by Paul Barnett.  Perhaps of interest to you, Paul has a website and offers the book for free in pdf along with many other resources and some audio files:

Neil Postman wrote Amusing Ourselves to Death and I wish that more people not only read it, but would take heed.  If it is any indication of how insightful I believe this segment to be, I typed up each word, and I think the final paragraph will change your life:

If you were a producer of a television news show for a commercial station, you would not have the option of defying television’s requirements.  It woudl be demanded of you that you strive for the largest possible audience, and, as a consequence and in spite of your best intentions, you would arrive at a production very nearly resembling MacNeil’s description.  Moreover, you would include some things MacNeil does not mention.  You would try to make celebrities of your newscasters.  You would advertise the show, both in the press and on television itself.  You would do “news briefs,” to serve as an inducement to viewers.  You would have a weatherman as comic relief, and a sportscaster whose language is a touch uncouth (as a way of relating to the beer-drinking common man).  You would, in short, package the whole event as any producer might who is in the entertainment business.

The result  of all this is that Americans are the best entertained and quite likely the least well-informed people int he Western world.  (more…)

Quarter-Life Crisis

While not an authoritative post on the subject, I was pleased to see the topic brought up in a recent Boundless article, which I’ve cleaned up a little to present below.  Hopefully it should stimulate some thought.  All too often we stop at labeling or categorizing instead of digging deeper to find find the root or cause.  And here this article gives a good perspective on what might really be going on in our (my) hearts.  Then, we must make our own personal application and resolve to do something about it:

Briefly, the quarterlife crisis hits people sometime after college and before they turn 30 when they realize that, well … life is hard!  Tim Elmore, a protégé of leadership guru John Maxwell, says “It’s 25-year-old people who are seeing counselors and therapists because they haven’t yet made their first million, haven’t yet found the perfect career or the perfect mate,” Elmore explained. “It’s self-imposed stress and pressure.”  This age group, dubbed “millennials” by demographers, are “much less attuned to reality” than previous generations, Elmore said.
