In the coming weeks, you’re going to notice a something different on my website. I am changing the tagline from With God Leadership to Purpose. Productivity. Peace. There are a few reasons for this, and I wanted you to know why.
1. The new tagline aligns with our company purpose.
My wife and I co-founded the company AdVance Leadership last year. Our company purpose is to mobilize high-achieving individuals and teams to live and lead with greater purpose, productivity, and peace.
- Purpose — how do you live and lead with greater focus on your life’s purpose and team’s purpose?
- Productivity — how do you focus your time and energy in order to accomplish your purpose?
- Peace — how do you live in a way that enhances peace in your life?
AdVance Leadership provides content, coaching, and consulting to individuals and teams to help them live and lead with greater purpose, productivity, and peace.
We wanted the tagline of this blog to reflect that purpose.
2. The new tagline reduces confusion.
Earlier in the year, I invited you to take a survey. It revealed that the tagline With God Leadership confused many of you.
That makes sense because it’s a term that I made up! With God Leadership describes one of my core philosophies on leadership: the leader’s first responsibility is to listen and follow God and only then to lead others.To lead with Him.
However, you helped me see that the term was too confusing. I don’t want a tagline that creates confusion!
By changing the tagline to purpose, productivity, and peace, we are using more common language that has less of a learning curve.
3. The new tagline better reflects most of the topics I write about.
I love leadership. I love to study it, write about it, teach it, and do it.
But leadership is only one aspect of what I write about. Many readers mentioned this in the survey. They commented that they didn’t read the blog simply for the leadership insights.
Almost everything that I write about can be categorized into three buckets of purpose, productivity, and peace.
4. The new tagline articulates the key differentiator — peace.
God created you to live with purpose. He designed you and put you on the planet for specific reasons. Part of your life’s work is to discover those purposes and live them out.
God created you to be productive. He created work (Gen. 2:15) and declared it to be very good (Gen. 1:31). Productivity is His idea.You can live purposefully and productively and still live in chaos. You need to live peacefully. Click To Tweet
But purposeful and productive people can still live chaotic, stressful, and busy lives. I know from experience!
My Journey to Purpose, Productivity, and Peace
I’ve been on a 20-year quest to increase my productivity. Ten years ago, I uncovered my life purpose while working with a life coach. As a result, my productivity became far more focused than ever before.
Yet knowing my purpose and being a productive person didn’t naturally lead to peace. In 2010, I found myself drowning in busyness.
I was alway angry. Always frustrated. And I was in full-time ministry!
I talked about the peace of God that passes understanding. But I didn’t experience it. As I began to discern why I didn’t experience the peace of God, I realized that I was living at a pace that was much faster and busier than God intended. I was living purposefully and productively. But not peacefully.
In 2010, my family began a journey to beat busyness because we wanted to experience the presence and the peace of God. Now, I live with purpose, productivity, and peace.
And I want to help you live with all three as well.
Some people already write about purpose. Lots of people write about productivity. But few people write about — much less know how — to live peace-filled lives of purpose and productivity.
I believe that peace is the key differentiator of what I write about. I want the tagline to reflect that.
These are the reasons that I’m changing from With God Leadership to Purpose. Productivity. Peace. Thanks for joining me on this journey to discover God’s purpose for your life, learn how to faithfully carry out His calling…and do it in a way that experiences and reflects His peace.
