Really enjoyed Matt McGill’s post on youth worker ADD and thought it might resonate with some of you like it did with me. Head there for his full analysis, here’s a clip to get you started thinking about how God wired you and how you work:
Donâ€™t feel guilty. You canâ€™t fight the way you are designed. Impulsive actions have huge benefit to the community. First: youâ€™re faster than most people. Faster to help, to have fun, to shake things up, etc.. Secondly, impulsive enthusiasm is infectious. Finally, you often make a ton of mistakes, and people get to laugh at you. Nothing creates community like laughter. If you donâ€™t like being laughed at, get over yourself.
Donâ€™t feel better than others. Iâ€™ve known some impulsive people to say they are more led by the Spirit, because they act quickly. The logic is so poor in this statement Iâ€™m not even going to engage it. If you feel like this, I feel sorry for you. If you want to have a discuss this, hit me up on Facebook. (see, I really do have a little compassion)
Head there for the rest!
