  • Worried About What You’re Not Doing

    zenhabits
    30 Jul 2015 | 9:26 am
    By Leo Babauta In any given moment, many of us are thinking about what we’re not doing. We feel guilty that we’re not doing more. Worried that we’re not as productive as we could be. Guilty that we procrastinate. We feel guilty that we don’t exercise more, eat right, have better bodies. We worry that we should be doing something better, something more amazing, doing what the amazing people we see online are doing. We worry about what we have to do later, what’s next, where we’re going. We worry about the goals we’re not reaching, or that we might not…

    By Leo Babauta This morning my son Seth woke up, gave me my morning hug, and then I told him that he and I are gods. We’re the Gods of This Day, and we have the power to make today one of the most amazing days ever. We don’t have unlimited power, but we have great influence. To make today amazing, we need to: Choose activities we love, or turn ordinary things into amazing activities. Really pay attention to each activity, and really appreciate its amazingness. Or, we could just let today be ordinary and not care. We chose to care. So we spent about 20 minutes thinking out what we…
  • The Joyful Results of My Grand Travel Experiment

    22 Jul 2015 | 6:52 am
    By Leo Babauta I’m just finishing up four weeks in Europe with Eva and the kids, and wrapping up my Grand Travel Experiment. I have to say it was (mostly) a success. I wasn’t perfect, but even in the failures, I learned a lot. I’ve written recently about my work and workout routines while I travel, so I’ll try not to repeat too much, but this post will be an overall summary of the entire experiment. During this experiment, I wanted to work on several problem areas for me in past trips: Overeating No regular exercise routine No regular work routine No regular meditation Not being able…
  • I Suck at Habits: How Do I Get Better?

    17 Jul 2015 | 6:00 am
    By Leo Babauta I’ve had numerous readers tell me that they Suck at Habits. And I totally get that, because in 2005, that’s exactly where I was. I sucked at habits. The good news is that I found a smarter way. I learned to understand that habits are a set of patterns that I just needed to repeat until they became more and more automatic … and that setting up the right environment is everything. Let me repeat that: setting up the right habit environment is everything. If you suck at habits right now, that’s because your environment is set up for you to fail. It’s incredibly hard to…
  • The 7 Things I Do to Stay Fit While Traveling

    zenhabits
    14 Jul 2015 | 7:00 am
    By Leo Babauta One of the big successes so far in my Grand Travel Experiment has been my fitness while on our long European trip. As my family of eight enters its last week of this four-week trip, I have to say that I’m probably just as fit as when I left, and in some ways even fitter — I can do more pushups and walk farther and longer, for example. My eating hasn’t been perfect, but it hasn’t been horrible … and I’ve done pretty well with exercise, so they’ve more than balanced out. This is a huge victory for me, believe me. I don’t usually keep a…

    I do love Guam -- and its people! But there is more to "Only on Guam" than the Guam Visitors Bureau reveals. It is probably the quirkiest place I've lived -- but maybe that's why I feel so at home there. I think, though, that the island is rapidly improving. Each time I return (I shoot for twice a year) it is noticeably cleaner and greener. There are more health care options and the infrastructure seems more stable. AND they are getting better at promoting themselves. Guam runs on tourism -- but the beaches never feel overcrowded. Enjoy the video.via

    I just got back from Chuuk yesterday. I went down there with Rev. Iotaka Choram who will be directing PIU’s Chuuk Teaching Facility operations starting this Fall. PIU will offer classes at our partner school Faithwalk Christian College this Fall and we also plan to offer classes at Berea Christian School on Weno as well. We are working on getting things set up and getting students enrolled for classes. I met with several church leaders and am planning on returning to Chuuk again to teach my Old Testament Survey course this Fall. I could have posted pictures of us in meetings but I thought…
  • An Old Testament Theology of Individual Spirituality and Character

    30 Jul 2015 | 2:52 pm
    I am continuing to work through Volume 3 of Goldingay’s, Old Testament Theology, Israel’s Life. In this volume Goldingay is looking at how Israel was to live, “not the life Israel actually lived”, but “the life the First Testament reckons it should have been and should be.” I continue to post quotes from Volume 3 on my Facebook page on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays. There will be a link to this blog post on my Facebook page where you can comment. Please comment there. Though the OT has more to say about the ethics of the community, individual responsibility, ethics and character…
  • Sunday Reading “The Lord and His Prayer” by NT Wright #6

    25 Jul 2015 | 2:38 pm
    Today we finish the book, The Lord and His Prayer, by N. T. Wright. The book was a result of a series of sermons preached in 1995 for Advent and published in 1996. In this book Dr. Wright looks at the Lord’s prayer phrase by phrase in six chapters. Each week we have been looking at one chapter and praying through the book as well, each Sunday focused on one phrase of the prayer. This week, we focus on the concluding doxology to the prayer, “Thine is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory.” I have already posted some quotes from this chapter on my Facebook page and this weekly chapter…
  • PIU Solar Power Project

    22 Jul 2015 | 7:14 pm
    Our PIU solar power project has begun. When the project is done we anticipate to have about 60% of the school’s power needs taken care of this way. Up front it should save the school about $1,000 per month in power costs and, over the next 20 years, much more than that. Our Library and men’s dorm will be covered by 228 solar panels and the project should be done before the students arrive mid-August. We are thankful to partner with Pacific Solar and Bank of Hawaii to make this happen. I will keep posting updates as the project moves forward.   The panels are going on the roof this…
  • Reading Through Philemon

Philemon is discussed in the volume of the series Fullness & Freedom: The Message of Colossians & Philemon, written by R. C. Lucas. Each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I post quotes from these commentaries on my Facebook page and periodic summaries of the commentary here on my blog. I welcome discussion on these post on my Facebook page. As always, quotes from the author are in blue font. Paul most likely wrote the letter to Philemon at about the…

  • I'm Reading About a Watchman

    27 Jul 2015 | 4:25 pm
    I'm currently reading Harper Lee's new novel "Go Set a Watchman." I am reading it after reading several dozen articles about how much people are detesting the book, because of the way it doesn't stand up to the "timelessness" and "beauty" of Harper Lee's first book, the widely read and praised "To Kill A Mockingbird." Gi minagahet, all the hate towards the book just made me want to read it more. I didn't enjoy "To Kill A Mockingbird" when I read it in school. I didn't enjoy watching the movie either. This new book is supposed to delve more deeply into many of the issues of race and class that…
  • Hafa na Libersaion? #22: Colonialism and America's Imperial Agenda in the Pacific

    24 Jul 2015 | 9:30 pm
    Liberation Day is always proposed as being a day of remembering, but it is the ultimate day when Chamorros forget. When all the realities of militarism, imperialism, colonialism all around them become even more muted and dull and obscured than usual. When so many of the problems that exist around us, about our place or non-place in the world, are drowned out, engulfed within a cascade of red, white and bull. The critiques are choked out of our mouths, as the patriotism deluge fills us up, meant to shut up those who feel like asking questions.This article provides some good reminders.
