People need to understand there is no market for drill bits.  Only for holes.  Once a new, more efficient, and cheaper way comes about, drill bits will stop being bought.  No one buys a drill bit just to buy a drill bit.  They buy them to drill holes.

My “hole” is to walk into a building and see it being used by all kinds of people to make their lives better.  The Oak House is my drill bit.

The hole I am trying to drill at work is to build community around an idea.  For my family, I am trying to get one child ready for adulthood and the other ready for life as a student.  In my ministry, I am trying to change the way a community looks at what a church can offer.

I have spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to start and nurture several aspects of community at The Oak House.  I realized a few days ago I should be looking for people to invest in to lead these areas and not try to do all the work.

In this season of my life, I have no shortage of new ideas to try.  I do not fear trying new things.  I fear inefficiency.  I can constantly evaluating systems to find improvement.  This latest discovery seems to be the best solution for now.

As I work through my next book for the year (#18 unless I finish another one beforehand), I will be journaling my answers to the book “Habitudes: Images that form leadership habits & attitudes”.  This particular book is the 3rd in the series.  You can read the other posts in this series here.
