I have decided to try to get back to the basics in 2013. I want to get back to a way of doing things where I truly keep the right priorities and focus and live a life the way God truly intended. Like the picture above, the idea may seem like a good one, but it’s not always the best. I can’t say that I’m going to build a desk for my treadmill, so I can work while exercising, but I do want to get back to a healthy personal lifestyle so I can lead well. It also reminds me that I need to think things through in a better way this year.
As leaders we are all susceptible to getting on the treadmill and rolling along doing the same things or using pre-packaged everything that requires very little prep or creativity. I would challenge every leader reading my little blog to consider what you are doing and where your investing your time. Is it really important in the scope of eternity? Is it the best use of your time and resources?
I want to lead a ministry that is doing things right and keeping the main thing the main thing!
So what are your top priorities this year?
Weight loss? better devotional life? resting more? finding a new curriculum? finding new volunteers?
I want to encourage you that one of your goals should be learning a new skill or sharpening an old one!
