Welcome to Getting Deeper with Tom

If you clicked on the GettingDeeper link looking for the SpotOnTheLake Water Depth Guide, this ain’t it.  You can find that information here.   This is the first post of what I hope will be weekly posts, that gives our lake community, and anyone else that might be interested, a chance to share ideas about things that matter.  I know a lot of people don’t have much extra time, but I hope that there are some that do.  Here’s the way it will work,  I will share an idea, a link or a story about something that happened in my week.  You can ignore it, read it, respond privately or respond publicly.  Please know that I am a believer and a blemished follower of Jesus, so you might see or hear about Him.   If you are not a follower, I hope that some of the ideas might still be helpful or interesting to you, and I would be interested to know what you think.  If you are a follower, I look forward to hearing from you, too, but I am more interested in hearing about you and what you think, than being preached to.

Getting Deeper - Week 1

Breathing RoomI am blessed to have work that I love, but I feel like the blessing is sometimes a curse.  It seems that I want to work all the time.  While I may not be in the office or with clients 24/7, my phone is on 24/7, and my phone is really good – too good.  I can do almost everything from my phone – text, email, facebook, search listings, get access to any written agreement in Dropbox, take pictures, find out what direction a house faces, shine a light in a dark basement, find out what year Kristi Overton held the world slalom ski record and oh yeah – sometimes even make a phone call.  It’s interesting though that around the lake, making phone calls is the thing it does the worst.   This week my Team Leader at Keller Williams encouraged me to watch a video of Andy Stanley from North Point Church talking about Breathing Room.  Breathing Room is something I haven’t had much of recently, and I think my relationships have suffered because of it.  Those would be relationships with my clients, my family and my friends.  Andy talks about how by not scheduling ourselves to the limit, or to our full capacity, we can actually be more productive in the time that we do commit to work.  I am starting with a half day with the phone off this week.  I will let you know how it goes.  The video is 45 minutes.  I hope you can find time to watch it.  Breathing Room.
