One more thing 4

Today Noble lists 15 things he wishes someone had told him when he entered the ministry.

A sample:

#1 – Everyone Will Not Understand You…SO Stop Trying To Explain Yourself. Cast Vision…And MOVE Forward!
#2 – Everyone Will Not Like You…So STOP Trying To Be Popular.
#3 – You Don’t Have To Be The Person Who Actually Solves Every Problem….Admit You Are Not The Smartest Person and Let Your Experts Be Your Experts.
#4 – Spend WAY More Time Talking About Who You Are Rather Than Who You Are Not.
#5 – A Leader Is Always An East Target Because They Are…A Leader. So, Get Over Yourself And Get On With What God Called You To Do!

PP suggests one more.

#16 – Don’t capitalize every word when you make Important Points.

    agreed, however, is this blog more about your annoyances with PN or about the things that are done that are actually questionable?

    because posts like these could put your credibility in question.

    imho.

      Michael, there were three reasons this was worth a post.

      1) I was interested in it.
      2) It offered PN some friendly advice on making his blog more reader friendly.
      3) It might prompt you to wonder what kind of person thinks his advice is so important that it Needs To Be Capitalized.

    1) legitimate
    2) mmmhmm..
    3) good point.

    credibility sustained.

    I was thinking that maybe these are chapter titles from his upcoming book and he just copied and pasted.

    But those would be some truly awful chapter titles.

    Aside from the bizarre formatting, which makes it difficult to read, he makes some nice points.

    I particularly enjoyed these:

    #2 – Everyone Will Not Like You…So STOP Trying To Be Popular.

    #3 – You Don’t Have To Be The Person Who Actually Solves Every Problem….Admit You Are Not The Smartest Person and Let Your Experts Be Your Experts.

    #11 – You Don’t Need To Listen To Everybody…But You Had Better Be Listening To Somebody Because God Didn’t Ask You To Take This Journey Alone.

    Good advice.
