De-cluttering and Essential Growth

by Gregory Herron on 15/11/2012

It was never my intention to stall this long between posts about personal growth and outdoor adventure on this blog.  Ouch!  What have I learned?  And where is Burning Bush writing going from here?  De-cluttering and Essential Growth.

For far too long I have almost obsessively tried to simultaneously juggle numerous projects, regardless of their productivity or connection to an audience.  “Never know what may take off…” I told myself.  2012 has been surprising, challenging, and confusing for me.  I have finally come to the conclusion, though, after beating too many dead horses, that some projects must die.  I will focus on the ones that bring me excitement, passion, and energy!

Today is the start of de-cluttering this website and also my One Big Thing in life.  In the past, I have delved into myself to find that “one big thing” that I am meant to accomplish with my life. I got close to defining it accurately, but it always seemed blurry.  I was analyzing my heart and life too much through the lens that self-help and personal growth circles of the physical realm so heartily provide.  But guess what?  Their wisdom had a ring of truth to it, yet after implementing it I consistently felt selfish and yucky.  I was not being me.

Be not ashamed that Jesus of Nazareth, that ever-mysterious character of Israel, radically changed my spirit and focus 18 years ago.  He must lead me into true simplicity, complete personal destiny, and connection with the tools required for such a quest.

Time to reflect

Really turning up the heat on helping people know themselves better, make appropriate action plans, and motivating them to reach their goals and their full potential ultimately. I loved these reflections so much that I made a worksheet out of them, and I wanted to pass it on to you.  Hope it serves you well as you thoughtfully prepare for a great 2012!  Just pass on this great info to others with either Facebook or Twitter, and the worksheet is yours!

Adventures into the Wild

My dad’s recent email provoked a more thoughtful response out of me regarding my recent long-distance mountain trek in the remote hills of Hong Kong.  It was a proverbial whopper ®. I am now ready to discuss what happened that night. It all came down to Experience and Experimentation.  I had been preparing for the [...]
