Firestarter: Do You Have a Team of Good Life Editors?

By Nate LaClaire —  November 8, 2010 — 2 Comments

A friend of mine recently loaned me two books by Donald Miller. I am enjoying the first of them, Blue Like Jazz, immensely. That’s probably why Lindsey Nobles’ October 22 blog post, The Best Thing I’ve Read This Week, caught my attention. The “best thing” referenced in that title is a post by Donald Miller entitled, Do You Have a Team of Good Life Editors? I am blessed by an excellent team of life editors, although I don’t often rely on them (or trust them) as much as I should. Reading this post got me thinking about how blessed I am in this area. I need to thank them and apologize for not following – or seeking – their advice as often as I should.

Do you have a team of good life editors?

  • Life editors? You mean critics right? Hahaha I think it was Spurgeon or someone like that who advises people to “turn their critics into coaches.” Best advice I’ve heard, man.

    • That’s great advice! Actually, Don Miller uses the term “life editor” to mean “friend,” but “critic” is a good definition as well! 🙂 It’s someone who will give you advice that you need to hear even when you don’t want to hear it.
