You Weren’t Very Persuasive Today

“Were my words wasted today?”

I ask that a lot.

I can’t stand being in the dark about this kind of thing. Yes or no? Did my work have an effect?

How can we know?

Let me tell you a mindset shift that helped me. (If you want to save time and frustration, keep reading.)

Make Abortion Illegal in Our Lifetime (In 15 Seconds You Can Make a Difference)

Today you have a rare opportunity. People are talking about abortion.

It becomes harder and harder to pretend that the baby inside the womb is merely a clump of cells as we learn that individual hearts, lungs, heads, arms, and legs are selling for $100 a piece. If you want to raise the consciousness of our society, here is a way to do it in 15 seconds:

Then look at the article, and click LIKE and SHARE.

That’s all you need to do.

I bought a $60 boost on Facebook to push this message further. But if you do what I’m asking you can boost it even more, and it doesn’t cost you anything.

I’m putting my money where my mouth is. Will you help me? Let’s make sure the country knows the truth about Planned Parenthood. Let’s make abortion illegal in our lifetime.

Do You Make This Mistake When Arguing?

I call this mistake “Not keeping your eye on the goal.”

It means not being 100% clear on what your goal is.

So, what is your goal?

If your goal is to say what you think — and then feel good about having said it — that’s not going to benefit anyone. Not you, and not anyone else.

That’s like the people who just say “You’re an idiot.” No one is benefited by that.

What’s With The Title?

I titled my blog “If We Will Live” because I will talk about important matters—life, reason, and faith.

Not all people chose to fully live. Even for those who intend to live, not all paths lead to life. What is the way of life? That is my question. I answer that the way of life must be discovered.

Platform-Building Pt. 2: Desktop and Workflow

I want to share the workflow I created for myself. If you’re a writer, you may find this helpful, especially if you’re building a “hearing with others” via an online platform.

[You might start by reading Platform-Building Pt. 1: Leaders Should Be Writers]

My weekly writing, reading, and platform-building activities are numerous.

It’s difficult to track them and to see how they fit together. If you’ve ever found yourself researching “twitter marketing” only to realize that you are late on posting your blog, you will sympathize.

I realized I was having a hard time seeing the big picture. My computer desktop was messy and I didn’t have a great concept of how all my “really important things” were fitting together.

So I listed out everything I do. I called it my “workflow.”
