Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love

We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.

But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.

48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.

If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.

A Big God and a Great Team

The sound of beeps and light eased me into consciousness. “Is the surgery over?” I asked.

“Yes, you’re in recovery,” a young woman said.

“What did they find?”

“They don’t tell us,” she said.

download-2 “Why am I shaking?” I asked.

“That’s a normal response to pain,” she said and injected a syringe into my IV.

Heavy sleep blanketed me once…

The Truth About Forgetting

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn. - Benjamin Franklin

Dear teacher or presenter… you talk too much. Your hour-long monologue was laced with catchy phrases, interesting information, and some things I didn't understand. I tried to take notes, but you talk faster than I write. Every now and then, you said something that I wanted to remember, but I forgot. By the time…

Healthy Food: How Can You Know What’s Real?

I just spoke with a gentleman who explained to me that he planned to continue chewing tobacco because he had just heard of a person that lived to be 90, who smoked and drank their entire adult life.

Tell A Better Story: Lowes

Excerpted from my blog AMOKArts.com

I know they’re glorified commercials but every once in a while a company will make a viral video that is so touching that it transcends commerce and enters the realm of film making. Lowes has just done it. This piece, set to “We’ve Only Just Begun” is easily one of the most touching things I’ve seen, at least in this medium. 

Friends as Christ following creatives we have a golden opportunity in this medium. The investment is smaller, the time…

Is Subjective Valuation Misunderstood?

Subjective valuation is totally misunderstood all of the time in these, the Dark Ages of economics. The empirical 'economists' have convinced people that choices are selfish not subjective. They cannot allow the idea of subjectivism (that would undermine their incorrect methodology) and so the only way they can explain choices by individuals is to call it selfish. This also opens the door (how convenient!) for…

More Damage or Less Damage, which is the better deal?

My last two car purchases were theft recovery cars from an insurance company.  I ended up paying more than I would pay for a damaged car that needed body work, but because it needed less work.  Installing seats and a radio seemed like a better deal since you did not have to pay a body shop guy to pull and paint your car.  I ended up paying more money for these cars, but find that I am not getting the return on investment I thought I would.  Customers don't really see the value in having to…

What Is Classical Liberalism?

It really started with the application of Aristotelian logic by the early learned ones – the monks – within the Christian world. In essence it was a sincere effort to harmonize science and religion. Significantly what emerged was the methodology of subjectivism.

Ask me about the methodology of subjectivism.

5 Things Every Good Coach Does

When my youngest son was playing ice hockey, a father who coached his team once told me, ” I think your boy has the ability to play at the next level if he gets some individual coaching.” He did not say he should be that coach or that my son wouldn’t be successful without the coach, only that moving to the next level might need more intervention than he was able to give my son.

Today as a career…

What to Do When Your AC Stops Working

(This was written last night).

As I write this blog post, our townhome currently has no AC in the upstairs. The downstairs is perfect, wonderful in fact. But upstairs, horrible!

You see, my wife and I like it cold, and I mean ice cold when we sleep. But hot air rises, and we definitely have our bedroom where the hot air rises. So tonight, it doesn't sound like there will be very much sleeping in comfort, or will there be? How do we solve this since nether of us are…

My Pop Art

I love pop-art. For me it's always felt like art for the masses and accessible to many people. As such it's one of my favorite media in which to create. I usually start off with a hand drawn piece, though sometimes I work completely digitally. Where a lot of the work that I do is…
