Change is all around us, all the time. If you facing a change in your life, family, work or ministry, you might find these 4 insights from The Nines Leadership Network important to know:
- Understand what doesn’t change
- Do your creative work first and reactive work second.
- Lose the distractions
- Keep growing and learning
In every situation there are things that should never change, intrinsic principles, values, and absolute truths that are central to existence.
Email, phone calls and things that “pop up” are important, but that is not your primary calling if you are to lead beyond where you are.
There are many good things, but not everything is profitable. Distractions and interruptions will chip away at the time available in your day.
In order for change to happen, new information has to come in, and that comes only from study, growth, learning new things.
As I prepare for 2011, I am praying for areas God wants to grow me, our family, and our ministry, and I think numbers 1 and 4 are where I will focus my energy.
