  1. Getting up at 5:00 AM to meet with people is hard.
  2. Asking questions about marriage, sex and ambition is hard.
  3. Telling a dude in a loving way that there is a serious lack of passion in his life is hard.
  4. Admitting that you are the one who blew it again is hard.
  5. Feeling worthy to disciple another person when you know what kind of sinner you are is hard.
  6. Fighting the idol of success (large crowds) while getting involved in the slow, time-consuming messiness of other people is hard.
  7. Keeping after it when you don’t see much progress is hard.
  8. Not going out of your mind when someone tells you that they are too busy is hard.
  9. Going beyond accountability to creating true fishers of men is hard.
