  • A Guide to Dealing with Frustration & Disappointment in Yourself

    3 Sep 2015 | 8:28 am
    By Leo Babauta One of the most common things I see in people who write to me is something we all share: disappointment in ourselves. We all feel this, because we constantly fail to live up to our standards: We aren’t as disciplined as we’d like. We don’t stick to habits we’re trying to create. We aren’t as productive as we plan to be. We leave small personal tasks and large work tasks undone. We fail in exercising as much as we’d like, and eating as healthily as we want. We fail in being the best parent, partner, friend, as we think we should be. We should,…
  • The Daybreak: Make an Important Goal Happen with a Morning Habit

    1 Sep 2015 | 9:26 am
    By Leo Babauta The sun begins to come up, and the first rays of light begin to shine upon this fresh day. What do you do with this time? The most important thing. If you have a project you want to happen (let’s say you want to write a book), this is the time to form a habit that will make that project happen. A morning writing habit will get the book done. Simply wishing for the book to get written, or saying you’ll do it “someday,” doesn’t make it happen. If it’s important, you’ll make a morning habit of it: If you want to lose weight, create a…
  • How to Deal with Your Family’s Bad Habits

    26 Aug 2015 | 1:30 pm
    By Leo Babauta Have you created healthy habits for you, but haven’t gotten your kids or spouse on board? You’re not alone — lots of people get frustrated when their loved ones don’t want to create healthy habits. I’ve had a bunch of people write to me about this, including one person who wrote about his sons, who are 10 and 12: “They have bad habits with unhealthy food, computer time, and fighting. And I have a very hard time trying to make a change for them. I do not live with their mother, who is a very good mother, but she so have some bad habits with food.
  • The Simple Health Plan

    21 Aug 2015 | 3:08 pm
    By Leo Babauta There are a lot of complicated diet and exercise plans out there, a lot of workouts that are the latest craze, a lot of fad diets and detox juicing and more. If it’s the newest craze, I recommend skipping it. Instead, let’s get down to the simple fundamentals: it’s not that complicated to get healthy. In fact, I’ve boiled it down to two strategies. Here’s my simple plan: 1. Eat a crapton of vegetables. 2. Do something active and fun every day. No, you don’t have to eat only vegetables — but you should make them the foundation of your diet,…
  • How My Mom Makes Everyone Around Her Better

    19 Aug 2015 | 6:30 am
    By Leo Babauta My mom just left our house after visiting for a week, and once again, our lives were changed. She visits us about twice a year, and every time she does, she leaves us with a new hobby, a new passion, a better version of ourselves. My mom (Shannon Murphy) makes everyone around her better, and yet most people whose lives she changes don’t even realize it. So what’s her secret? I honestly wish I knew her special recipe, but I’m going to do my best to share what I know with all of you. It’s amazing, honestly. Some examples of ways she’s made people…

  • New Testament Reading For 2015-16

    3 Sep 2015 | 1:42 pm
    Some of you may know that I try to read through the New Testament each year accompanied by a corresponding commentary set or theology. My goal in this is to think through my own reading and the implications of it for me and my ministry at PIU and to the churches of Micronesia, but it is also to make these books accessible to my students, alumni and to the people in churches in the region. Of course, the big purpose is always to get people to read more books that will help them draw closer to Christ and think more “Christianly.” This year (I am a teacher so my “year” goes from…
  • Prayer Chapel at PIU

    1 Sep 2015 | 2:19 pm
    Here at PIU we began the month of September with prayer. Yesterday we had our first prayer chapel of the semester. The worship team led us in music and in praying through the Lord’s Prayer during our one hour chapel time. I especially enjoyed sitting in a group with three students and praying for them and their families and having them praying for me and for my family. I love working in a place where we take an hour twice a week to focus on worship and prayer. Just one of the many reasons that PIU is a great place to work. We appreciate your prayers for PIU as well.
  • PIU Basketball

    31 Aug 2015 | 3:10 pm
    With the start of the Fall semester we also start basketball season for our PIU team. We are playing in the Guam church basketball league. We have started the season 0-2 but we are enjoying the time. This week we have a couple games to look forward to. I am coaching the team right now and enjoying it very much. It gives me some good time to get to know the students and I have a good time being back on the coaching bench after about 10 years away from it. I originally came out to Micronesia as a high school teacher and basketball coach at Emmaus High School in Palau in 1984. Here are a few…
  • Conclusion to Goldingay’s Theology

    29 Aug 2015 | 3:59 pm
    Today is my final post on Old Testament Theology, by John Goldingay. We have worked through all three volumes: Israel’s Gospel, Israel’s Faith and Israel’s Life. Though I don’t always agree with all his conclusions, I have enjoyed very much working through these volumes. What I most appreciate about Goldingay is that he seems to let the text set the direction of his thinking rather than trying to fit the text into his theology. I also appreciate the humility in his conclusions highlighted by the frequent use of the word “perhaps” to introduce them. Thinking through the Old…
  • First Chapel of the Semester

    29 Aug 2015 | 1:22 pm
    Well technically it was not the first chapel of the semester but it was the first regular PIU chapel of the semester. PIU Chapel coordinator Mike Owen got the PIU chapel band organized and ready to go for the first worship service of the semester and I gave my traditional opening sermon highlighting the biblical basis behind the PIU core values of accessibility, excellence, and transformation.     We sang the doxology in several languages including Chuukese, Tagalog and Hawaiian. Mike is looking for the words to the Doxology in all the other languages too It is nice to have all the…

  • Japanese Peace Movements #12: Seeing Colonialism in Okinawa

    2 Sep 2015 | 10:31 am
    In October I'll be traveling to Okinawa yet again for a conference dealing with decolonization and the movement there towards independence. The movement started off with a core group, but has grown over the years and occasionally grabbed national headlines in Japan. I have spoken at several events organized by activists pushing for decolonization over the years, stretching back to 2012.For people who know of Okinawa as just a military base or the islands south of Japan, this may seem strange to you, to be confronted with the fact that there are people in Okinawa seeking independence from…

  • Japanese Peace Movements #11: The Miracle Tree

    27 Aug 2015 | 8:29 am
    On my trip to Tohoku, the Popoki Peace project visited several towns that were affected by the tsunami. In each there were markers of the tragedy, stories of survival and also worries about what the future might bring. Along the roads, each town would have a markers identifying the point at which you were entering the tsunami inundation area and exiting it. Because of this, even if towns and roads are rebuilt, you can still imagine how far the waters and the destruction reached as you drive up the coast. Each town also had markers on street corners, on the side of buildings, power poles and…
  • Japanese Peace Movements #10: A Shrine of Forgetting

    25 Aug 2015 | 10:23 am
    Yesterday I spent the day at the Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo. It was a very surreal experience. On the surface it appears like many other shrines or places or worship or reflection in Japan, but it was an incredibly militaristic space. It featured museums dedicated to a whitewashed military history of Japan, thousands of letters from soldiers writing home about how happy they were to die for Japan, and statues for the courage of war widows. The shrine is meant to serve the more than two million souls who have died as soldiers for Japan over the past century, so the militaristic and warmongering…
  • Japanese Peace Movements #9: Signs

    24 Aug 2015 | 9:40 pm
    I may have only been in Japan for a little less than a month, but it seems to me that Japan enjoys a heavy emphasis on instructions, signs and communicating properly. Perhaps because I can't read most of these signs as they are in Japanese and so because of that they are more visible and noticeable to me, whereas for others they simply fade into the background like visual cicadas. When walking by a construction site, signs are everywhere warning people to be safe, to not enter and even to apologize profusely for the inconvenience. Everywhere you go helpful and usually colorful mascots offer…
