Ben Settle and Tim Williamson – thank you.

Ben Settle has issued a 30-day email challenge, which I’m launching next week on my return from a short break. This will be business-related.

Tim Williamson has issued a Spiritual Journal challenge. Far from lasting 30 days, it could last forever. No – scratch that word ‘could’ – and replace with should.

Who are these people?

Screen Shot 2016-01-07 at 07.33.09Ben Settle is an inspiring copyrighter and much more besides. He helps people grow their business. He’s edgy and actively encourages people to unsubscribe from his email lists.

This might seem like an odd thing to do.

But if people whinge about something in his content he learns the lesson – if there’s one to learn – but more often than not if it’s a whingy whine that wastes everybody’s time El Benbo – as he’s affectionately known – tells them to go away.

His methods have helped many people pile on more business, so that’s why I’m going to be taking his 30-day challenge.

On Sunday January 3, 2016, Tim challenged us to keep a spiritual journal, to track our prayers and experiences of God through the year.

This was on the back of some notes people wrote to themselves in the corresponding first service of the year in 2015 – notes which set out intentions and requests for the coming year.

After reflecting on those notes a few people shared how their years had panned out, and it was good to hear encouraging stories.

So in introducing our study for the next few weeks – Colossians – Tim encouraged us to take a few moments every day to jot down our experiences of God in our lives.

So … thank you gentlemen, and away we go … (see next entry)

  • I realise that this is a big departure from previous entries on Heavy Hats. The running element halted when I suffered with trochanteric bursitis last May. I’m doing circuit training but can’t progress to middle distance runs just yet. Also, I’m still in touch with Andy, Dave and Pete. But things evolve, and so will this blog. Thanks for looking.

  • If you’d like to sign up to my daily email in the 30-Day challenge please do so by visiting this link (to be added upon launch). The daily emails will help you to communicate more effectively with written words in your personal and your business life.
