    Pastor John Mark Comer realized that being too busy was destroying his health, relationships, and his connection to his faith. 

    Our lives are composed of a series of moments. But what if you’re so busy and stressed that you can’t appreciate the moment you’re in? 

    Comer was very successful on paper. He had a rapidly growing church in Portland, Oregon. Every year a thousand new members joined – testimony to his powers as a pastor. He was married with kids and the author of several books. 

    But underneath all these accomplishments he felt a constant buzz of anxiety. 

    He worked six days a week and taught up to six classes per day. His relationships with his staff were tense because he snapped at them, his stress spilling over onto the people around him. At night, he would slump on the couch, mindlessly watching Kung Fu movies. He felt hollow and depleted, like a ghost in his own life. 

    On a plane ride home from London, he had a revelation. He asked himself, Who am I becoming? He realized that while he had grown a successful church, he had gone further away from his spiritual mission. He’d become like the CEO of a large organization, stuck in meetings all day. But his passion lay in connecting with his congregants.

    He sucked up all his courage and told the leadership of his church that he was resigning. Instead of overseeing all the operations of the megachurch, he wanted to follow his heart to Portland’s inner city and become pastor of the lone small church there. They accepted his resignation, and he was free.

    For the first six months, he completely crashed because of all his accumulated exhaustion. He also felt like he had to detox from the busy lifestyle he’d been living, almost as if all the stress had been a drug. 

    Gradually he was able to recover emotionally and spiritually. He had time to play with his kids, walk the dog, go to therapy. 

    To an external observer, he had become much less successful: from leader of a megachurch with many branches and thousands of congregants to pastor of a small, obscure church in Portland’s inner city. However, he knew that for him real success meant having emotional and spiritual health and that he was on the right track.

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll

    Viele tolle Bücher, auf deren Kernaussagen reduziert- präzise und ansprechend zusammengefasst. Endlich habe ich das Gefühl, Zeit für Bücher zu finden, für die ich sonst keine Zeit habe.
