Perpetually behind, I realize that I keep falling into a common trap. I want to do everything so perfectly that I end up getting nothing done. I talk about why this is such an easy trap to fall into and the perfect antidote.

A few years ago, my parents’ parish redesigned their website. I have an interest in these sorts of things, so I complemented my mom one day on its beauty and usability.

My mom expressed dismay that no one had stepped forward to take on that responsibility.

Turning the pages, I feel like I'm living in the period. I now have a much better sense of what America was like in the 1850s.

I underestimated how impactful parenting would be in my spiritual life. Nothing has better helped me to understand the mind of God than being a dad. We spend a lot of time talking about Jesus, but we forget about getting to know the Father and Holy Spirit. Parenting is helping me to cover that lost ground.

I’m not one to advocate for low bars. I’ve been told that I am particularly hard on people, which, upon reflection, is regrettably true. Setting ambitious expectations can be a net positive, but when it comes to my job, it can be demoralizing.
