Stress less. Accomplish more. Win the day. Who doesn’t want more of all of that?

Well-known author of “The Circle Maker” & lead pastor of National Community Church, Mark Batterson joins me in this episode to discuss the life-changing lessons and habits he’s learned on winning the day in writing, fatherhood, leadership, and pastoral ministry.

We discuss his best “Jedi mind tricks” for writing and publishing books, his secrets to hitting points home in sermons, his (very unexpected) favorite book, and the shelf he runs to when he first walks into Barnes & Noble. Mark is a wealth of knowledge for habits and structures you can implement into your life and leadership to “win the day” every day.

This conversation was so unforgettable for me and has truly transformed my daily habits — I know it will be just as life-changing for you too.
