I heard Andy Stanley tell a story once about buying paper cutters.

I still remember the horror, the helplessness, and the hatred I had in my heart. I’d just been fired from a job I hated but felt that I needed to keep. We’d just moved into a new home, with a new mortgage and our six-month-old daughter was asleep upstairs.
My first reaction was panic. I was absolutely terrified. New dad, new house, single income.
My next emotion was helplessness. I literally had no idea what to do. Sure, I hated my job. In fact, just the night before, my wife Tara essentially told me I needed to find a new job…or else.

“I’m new to blogging —— REALLY brand new. I’m having a difficult time feeling pulled in many directions with all the things I SHOULD be doing / growing + life and I freeze. But I am taking steps to gain focus and clarity and to step forward with action.
I suppose I’m trying to find my authentic voice and feel vulnerable — like I have one shot at setting up who I am. I know writing “scared” can be a good thing, but then it also is a bad thing for the sales end. Does this make sense?”
Yes it does, Lisa. Listen up to this episode for my response.
