What on earth is maction? It is a new term for “massive action.” I was recently talking to a friend and he said that he had set aside the month of June for maction. He has a second child coming in August so pretty much whatever he hopes to accomplish in the next few months needs to be done now.
I’ve been absolutely wore out lately with church stuff. Hospital visits always take a toll on me and I’ve had someone in the hospital for the last three weeks. It all started with three people in the hospital which wouldn’t be out of the ordinary expect my church isn’t that big. But I’ve also noticed before that hospital visits come in bunches. I can go months without anyone in the hospital and suddenly I’ll have a group of them.
All of this has left me worn out and feeling like I haven’t gotten much done lately. It’s also a foolish time to take on any more projects. Yesterday I decided to take on a new project on a whim however. My whims have been some of the greatest ideas I’ve ever had and have been the cause of some of my greatest online successes. Despite the fact that I had decided to focus all of my online work on Christian websites from now on, I took on an entertainment project. Hoping to be ahead of the curve, I’m setting up a network of sites devoted to 3D technology. If it doesn’t catch on I’m not too concerned because I don’t have too much invested in it.
Just having a change of pace has felt really good though. I love the work I do as a pastor and I love what I do online. If I had the option of doing them for free I would. But it is nice to take on a new project that has no religious significance. That way there is no real pressure to even complete the project if I don’t feel like it. If the project fails, I won’t lose any sleep over it either because there is no significance to it other than an opportunity to supplement my income online.
While I’m energized I hope to get the bulk of the work done for the new sites. Unlike the other projects that I’ve taken on recently, this one is meant to be short term. This means that right now is time for maction. Even though there’s not religious significance I’ll post the links here when the sites are completed just in case anyone is curious. (And it helps my search engine ranking when there are more links too. 🙂 )
