2/3 No Life Plan
PORTLAND, Ore. — If you feel as if you’re wandering aimlessly through life, you’re not alone: two-thirds of Americans do not have a life plan in writing that they actively follow, a new survey finds.

Good old Portland Oregon, the home of quasi-get-a-life-deny-others-freedom-of-life Oregon comes the great wisdom of Nike executive Lee Weinstien. Nike executive Lee Weinstien who when you are that rich can wear such, shall we say colorful shirts and everyone thinks you are cool. Put that shirt on middle-class neighbor, well, pressing on with Study Finds findings…
Of the findings, Lee Weinstein, a former Nike executive commented in a press release, “If life were a project like the kind you’re asked to complete at work or school, and you knew you had a limited time to get it done, wouldn’t it make sense to develop a plan?” – Lee Weinstein, Nike Executive
Don’t you wish the Study Fairy would sprinkle her magic dust and vanish some of these “studies?”
Ok, Nike executive Lee Weinstein and the Study Finds, the reason 2/3 either does not create a “life plan” or follow a “life plan” (dripping with sarcasm here) is that they are too busy with life.
Life for the non-executive, that is 2/3 of mankind, womankind or itkind does not include the luxury of options. Life comes and directs you – not you direct life.
Please place on your Life Plan goal to step outside and behold humankind (Hope that avoided the whole man issue thingy. Wouldn’t want to offend anyone with reality.)
The Real Deal
Here is the deal – stop trying to control your life. Let Him who desires loving fellowship with you inspire, guide and shepherd you.
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (Psalm 23:1-6)
Find your Life Plan and your toast. No, really, literally toast being burnt to a crisp for eternity because of your self-centered worship of yourself idolatry.
Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. (Matthew 10:39)
Nike executive Lee Weinstein should put on his list, Take warning from the Living God.
And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.” ‘ “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’ “This is how it will be with anyone who stores up things for himself but is not rich toward God.” (Luke 12:19-21)
Mr. Weinstein should check his balance sheet for riches toward God – just to be on the safe side. By the way, as a preacher of holiness in Jesus, I offer my accounting skills to help you perform an audit. And, no, I care less about your money – indeed – I have been taught by Him, Jesus to hate and despise the dollar.1
