Don’t Confuse Motion with Action


You’re moving at a mile a minute. You have so much to do—like change the world and make everyone happy… and there’s little time to do it all. You schedule classes, meetings, work, charity events, blog posts, and a speaking event at the local YMCA. And it’s all in a week’s work.

That’s a lot to juggle for anyone. Breathe for a sec. Just because your calendar is full, doesn’t mean you’re actually being productive. Take a minute, slow down, and figure out whether what you’re doing is contributing to your personal mission and your well being. Think on it for a couple of hours… or a full day. You’ll probably end up saving yourself a bunch of energy and make everything you want to do work together. And maybe you’ll have time to finally dive in on that fun thing you’ve been putting off for years (ukelele lessons?).

Plan + Motion = Action


Winging it + Motion = Wasted energy

Synopsis:
The Gospel According to Josh
A 28-Year Gentile Bar Mitzvah

In this 30 character, 7 song one man show, a small town teenager, Josh, follows his big dreams to Hollywood despite the tempestuous relationship with his pious father. 
By the time he turns twenty-five, Josh thinks he’ll have had the perfect life—a few years singing on Broadway, followed by a starring role in his own television show. After which, his getaway home in the Hamptons would be featured in Better Homes & Gardens, and his face would grace the cover of the National Enquirer as Bigfoot’s not-so-secret lover. Instead, his resume is filled with an assortment of minor league theatre and an appearance on The Maury Povich Show—a career sidetracked by his father’s tragic suicide.
Tortured by his thoughts, he finds himself on the ledge of a fourth floor window, contemplating jumping out—in turn he must reach out to the only person who can help him before it’s too late.
Featuring cameos by Ella Fitzgerald, Sammy Davis Jr., and Elvis; The Gospel According to Josh is a comedic and poignant true-to-life tale of love, loss, struggle, and survival—a gospel account of one young man’s passage into manhood—his twenty-eight-year Gentile bar mitzvah.
