The Key to remembering, organzing, and using everything you read.

References for using 4x6 notecards as a didactic tool. Ryan Holiday seems to have the easiest system to grasp at first and put into practict. The following is from him (tweaked only a little by me).

  1. If I have a thought, I write it down on a 4×6 notecard and identify it with a theme -- or if I am working on a specific project, where it would fit in the project. 
  2. Most of the time, what I write down are quotes. Or sentences in my own writing, words I like, questions I have, or examples I think might fit somewhere and want to learn more about.
  3. The key to this system is the ritual: Read a book or an article and diligently mark the passages and portions that stand out at you. If you have a thought, write it down on the page (this is called marginalia). A few weeks after finishing the book, return to it and transfer those notes/thoughts on to the appropriate note cards (waiting helps you separate the wheat from the chaff). 
  4. In the top left hand corner of each card, put a theme or category that this card belongs to. 
  5. Helpful tip: If you end up using the back of the card (I do it fairly often), note that on the front of the card.
  6. Periodically go back through the cards.

Image of Who Cares Poster Print

What's wrong with this picture?

Let me first say I own this print; I have it framed where I see it and look at it every day. I even printed up some tracts with this illustration before, trying to motivate Christians in my ministry to evangelize. But there's something wrong with this picture ...two things actually:

  • It depicts a man-centered gospel message. 
  • It's the reason for the modern gospel message.

The Almost Inevitable Ruin Of Every Minister . . . And How To Avoid It

by Don Whitney

1 Timothy 4:15-16 15 Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. 16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

Almost everyone knows someone who used to be in the ministry. Almost everyone knows someone who shouldn't be in the ministry. And every minister knows another minister—if not several—he does not want to be like.

But the sad news for ministers is, regardless of your age or education or experience, it is almost inevitable that you will become the kind of minister you do not want to be. So I think it's important to address the subject of: the almost inevitable ruin of every minister . . . and how to avoid it.

Once when a Southern Baptist denominational executive was on the Midwestern Seminary campus in the late 1990s, he asserted that statistics show that for every twenty men who enter the ministry, by the time those men reach age sixty-five, only one will still be in the ministry.
