We’re back with Episode 100! 🎉 It’s hard to believe!

To celebrate, we’re so excited to share today’s episode with Carey Nieuwhof with you.

Carey is a bestselling leadership author, speaker, podcaster, and former attorney. He hosts one of today’s most influential leadership podcasts. His podcast, blog and online content are accessed by leaders over 1.5 million times each month. He also just released a new book!

In today’s episode, though, we talk about Carey’s story (including a story he hasn’t shared before!), leading in small churches, the undeniable call he experienced to ministry in the midst of a career in law, discovering how to live a life that’s not on the way to burnout, and the practical things he’s learned about truly leading at your best. Here’s one of our favorite quotes: “Time off won’t heal you when the problem is how you spend your time on.”

This is a powerful conversation that we are so eager for you to hear. Don’t miss this one!

Key Takeaways

1) “Time off won’t heal you when the problem is how you spend your time on.” Read that one again. Whew! If we are living a life that is too busy, too full, and too chaotic, we are living our lives in the stress spiral.

2) “There are a lot of us that like to be needed. It makes us feel important.” No human is capable of being on-call every day, all day. Yet so many pastors try to live that way. This isn’t sustainable, and it often flows from an unhealthy perspective of leadership.

3) “I don’t have to care for everybody, but I have to create a church where everyone is cared for.” This is a paradigm shift for so many of us. So important.

4) Guard your most productive hours. “Everybody talks about time management but we don’t think enough about energy management.” We all have green, yellow, and red zones of productivity that are unique to us. Guard your green zone to accomplish the most important work.
