#6 is very evocative for me, given what i know about seth’s roamings of the planet in Jesus’s name. He reminded me for a long time of a corporate executive who enjoyed dirt under the finger nails like say Milton Hershey or a successful CEO acquaintence of mine from Virginia who who refused to give up his UAW card even though he was management for GM – despite their intense pressure.
For me #6 reminds me of giving up being a corporate officer of a public company I founded and two public boards to take care of two very young children alone for seven years. I remember having a panic attack with a nine month old in the tub, thinking “Is this it? I have to do this every day?” It turns out that the decision to do this was easy, the execution was hard.
For me, despite having ridden the entire Internet boom as a corporate type doing 3 continents of meetings, the best time of my life was this period of my life. How God had prepared me for this “tub time” period is another story…
So… pushing Seth as I always do,and with the thought of easy decision vs hard execution, he and (more importantly) his wife should talk about the pain and joy of that execution
