I had the opportunity last year to spend some time with the incredible ministry coaches at the Blessing Ranch in Colorado. As with any great coaching or training event, I learned some new things about me. One of the most obvious (to apparently everyone but me!) was that I need an end to my day.
I manage a wonderful staff and cadre of volunteers and much of my leadership, management, and mentorship needs to fall outside of their work days. So my day was beginning about 6 am and typically ends with the final phone calls around 9 or 10 pm.
