What’s in it for me? A reverent, respectful look at how to overcome life’s most challenging problems.

Life comes at you fast, huh? One minute, you’re a fresh graduate, eager to change the world with your big ideas and inspiration. The next, you’re a middle-aged cynic, self-medicating your way through regret, disappointment, and depression. 

No one is immune: whether you’re a high-flying executive or a hardworking barista, sooner or later, you’ll encounter one of the seven great challenges in life: cynicism, compromise, disconnection, irrelevance, pride, burnout, and emptiness.

The good news is, you can learn to recognize the signs of these impending challenges and take steps to mitigate their impact. These blinks guide you through the seven great obstacles and show how you can use Jesus’s teachings as a roadmap to navigate them. 

In these blinks, you’ll learn

  • concrete steps to nip cynicism in the bud;
  • why character is more important than competence for lasting happiness; and
  • why simply putting away our devices won’t necessarily make us more present to our family and friends.
