It’s Monday With Joshua & Kerrie . . . Choose The Best


It’s Monday!   

Monday is our day to ramp it up and renew an element of living.   We recommend this practice for individuals, couples, and families as well as organizations.  This practice serves who we are and what we do.

This week our conversation at the table is about intentionally choosing the best . . . thoughts, behavior, words, beliefs, habits, routine, and rhythm . . . every. single. day. 

Choose The Best

  1. Understand what the best is for your life, relationships, and organization.  Of course, it’s a process to put together your best plan and strategies.

Best advice: First and foremost be laser-focused on your core values.  The best flows out of our core values.  The key to these core values is to anchor them soul-deep.

We filter everything through the core-value grid at TableThink. 

      • I will live a meaningful life.  I will: Love God.  Love myself.  Love others.
      • I will live a purposeful life.  I will:  Align.  Assimilate.  Activate.
      • I will live a fulfilled life.  I will:  Inspire.  Innovate. Invest.
      • I will live an influential life.  I will: Live the best.

2.  Evaluate the habits which sabotage the best.

Best advice:  Develop and implement core habits which serve your best.  A core habit is produced from a core value.  It requires time and tenacity to develop core habits which define who we are to be and what’s ours to do as an individual, couple, family, and organization.

An essential core habit: Keep a positive insight about any and all situationsIt requires exercising the mind to see the good, especially when something arises outside of our plan and strategies.  Lessons are learned when we focus on the  good in the worst of situations and frees us from the negative pressure and power of it all.

3.  Respond with quietness and confidence in the best; it is key to your strength.

Best advice:  Memorize the God words from Isaiah 30:15: In quietness and confidence shall be your (my) strength.” (NKV). Sometimes it takes all of our energy to become quiet.


When the soul is quieted there’s space to settle what really matters and to proceed with confidence.   This response deletes the power of regret in the future.

    1. Begin by make space in the day to become quiet, inviting the Spirit of God to be present.
    2. Let go of the noisy demands of the day.  
    3. Be fully present in the presence of God.  

These three elements are essential in choosing the best for every. single. day.

Make it a great day!
