The Queen of Questions

In The Boat

Last week I was reading a new book “Evil Plans: Having World Domination” by Hugh MacLeod, and he writes “I would suggest that, right this minute, you make a list of the twenty or so people in your space that matter the most. Then ask yourself, who on this list is actually reading your stuff, actually follows what you’re up to, actually knows that you exist?”
So I did. I stopped and pulled out a notebook and tried to make a list of the 20 people I would like to work with. They are the ones I read or follow or see moving in areas I want to be in. Here’s my list so far, in no particular order:

1. Michael Hyatt
2. John Bergquist
3. Shelia Walsh
4. Jon Dale
5. Andy Stanley
6. Hugh MacLead
7. Don Miller
8. John Lynch
9. Vern Hyndman
10. Brene Brown
11. Chip Ingram
12. Lisa Tuttle
13. Jan Lewis
14. Kay Arthur
15. Juliette Powell
16. Gary Barkalow
17. Jack Lynady

My husband asked me why I wanted to work with these people and what it would look like. Why would I like to be in the same boat with them? Over the next few weeks I will tell you about them and why I would like to work with them.
A boat is safe in the harbor, but that’s not what boats are built for. So I ask you, seriously, who’s on your list? Who’s in your boat?

    1. Thank you! I’m still learning how to move things around and getting all the buttons to do what I want them to. It’s getting there.

  2. I’m enjoying your posts Lana! Looking forward to hearing more about why you chose the people you did for your boat. You’ve given me something interesting to journal and think about!

    Thank you!

    1. I think you’re going to find each one comes with a challenge to become who God created you to be. I know I’m looking forward to sharing about them.

  3. Wow Lana! I really appreciate this. And enjoyed reading some of your other posts too. Maybe we could guest post for each others blog soon. Also, do you know a place called “Timber Cove Inn” on the coast north of Santa Rosa. My wife and I love that place. We have been there twice. Very cool and beautiful.
