Unfortunately, other chapters in the book are nothing short of shallow and outright nonsensical. In chapter four, "Time Management...a Con Game," Seybert takes a stand against teaching workers and members techniques and systems that will reduce work hours, increase production output, and better organize employees. He claims that churches and companies have cut out too many positions and have asked remaining workers to pick up the slack, without getting raises. Instead, management should just reduce workloads. That's a pretty thought, but welcome to the 21st century, pal. Companies are going bankrupt or are hanging on by a thread in this disastrous economy. They are reducing workforces by necessity, and those employees who remain need all the time management training and help they can get.
Likewise, chapter 11, "Quit Playing It Safe," is about taking risks and exercising options that will push workers to the limit in trying to reach phenomenal achievements. Doesn't Seybert read the newspapers? That is what got this country in the mess it's currently in. People who could not afford to buy homes risked their jobs and futures and savings in order to jump out and buy a huge home anyway. When the banks called the loans, the home owners lost their equity, savings, and homes. They had no back-up plan. They were reckless and foolish, and it cost them everything. A far better idea would be to be like Jesus, who said that before a man builds a tower, he needs to sit down and carefully consider all the costs involved. Challenges are worthy, but over-the-top gambles are outright stupid.
This book will cause readers to think in new ways. However, not all the new ways will be wise ways. This text must be read with caution, careful analysis, clear perspective, and balance. Those suggestions that are sound, creative, and functional should be adopted. Those that are irritating, outlandish, and irrational should be ignored. Proceed with caution. Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
