THE MYTH OF BALANCE
Thriving in tension of ministry, work, and life with the
When This, Then That leadership formula
About the Book
Balance is a mythical beast. We always say we need to achieve it for equilibrium in our work life or family time, but balance doesn’t really exist.
In The Myth of Balance, Frank Bealer explains how a simple four-word formula can prepare you for the expected and not-so-unexpected events that distract you in the most inconvenient moments.
Next time, be ready to slay the beast of balance with this time-tested approach.
“In The Myth of Balance, Frank shares the secret of how he gets everything done.
And it’s not what you expect.”
Carey Nieuwhof, founding pastor, Connexus Church
Balance in ministry, work, and life doesn’t really exist.
But you can thrive in the tension between them.
The Myth of Balance can help you:
Embrace the idea that ministry is exceptions.
Recognize the warning signs of catastrophe brewing from your “busy seasons.”
Create a predictable plan for handling the unpredictable things vying for your time.
Make the necessary shifts in the way you lead and manage your life so you can continue in ministry for the long haul.
