2014 Sep/Oct: 3 States, 2 Provinces, 1 Book Tour

2014 Sep/Oct: 3 States, 2 Provinces, 1 Book Tour
The Road Trip Road Trip is history! 2500 miles across the United States and Canada! If you're connected with me by social media, you caught a pretty good smattering of pictures, video and updates. My travels in the Rav4 are done...for now...and here's what happened. Lotsa pictures, little talking.



But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14
Carpe Diem: Seize the Day!

Then the long road back to Wausau and home. Amazing book tour...and so glad to be home with Colleen, Wade, Jason and Zoe!


Here are my Sep/Oct personal goal updates:

1. Personal Energy

Being on the road so much, and the press to get on the road, has thrown my routines off quite a bit! That said, with just a few Mr. Ed days (medium energy) thrown in, I'm pretty pleased with the galloping nature of these two months.



Goal for November: Get back to better sleep patterns.

2. Road Trip

Tour complete, what are the next steps for the Road Trip project?



Goals for November/December:
  • Speaking at the Northwoods Vineyard Church on Sunday, December 7th.
  • Get more Amazon reviews. The first review was very negative from someone with a very different worldview. Your responses are welcome!
  • Continue work on the study guide and life planner.
  • Work on TZX Fraternity for 2015.
  • Much prayer!!!

Comments are always welcome!
