The Leader & Planning
What is important is seldom urgent and what is urgent is seldom important.
We're really drawn into the unimportant.
Oftentimes, without even noticing, we drift away.
Planning involves taking one step at a time.
God gives wisdom when we come to him in absolute humility.
A clear mission drives. It is much better to do a few things and do them well.
We have to take time to think and pray and refocus on what's important.
WHAT WOULD IT LOOK LIKE FOR ME TO RECALIBRATE
WHAT'S IMPORTANT TO ME?
What are my roles?
What is the balance of my accounts?
-Me: Am I growing?
-Physical activity; health
-Evangelism & outreach
Focusing on one will create a deficit in others
We are called to juggle multiple times & responsibilities.
WHAT IS MY ENVISIONED FOCUS FOR ALL THESE ACCOUNTS? WHAT DO THEY LOOK LIKE WHEN FUNCTIONING WELL?
Death sifts through the unimportant, and shows us how numbered our days are.
START IS GOD'S ENVISIONED ROLE FOR ME?
WHAT ARE GOALS FOR EACH ACCOUNT?
HOW CAN THESE GOALS BE ACCOMPLISHED?
WHAT'S THE CURRENT REALITY?
Recognize we can never do enough & will always desire miss time
Don't try to do everything at once
Planning isn't about making more time in the calendar. Planning is about making intentional decisions to fulfill and be good starts of our God-given roles. We will have to be willing to cut stuff out.
When we make a calendar and work hard on it, it becomes easier to say no.
WE HAVE TO BE ABLE TO PLAN FOR FLEXIBILITY AND INTERRUPTIONS.
