As I continue consulting with organizations and their leaders, one of the biggest obstacles that’s becoming more and more clear is that some leaders understand the importance of communicating their message, and others don’t. It’s that simple. The ones that see the importance, and are willing to budget the time and money necessary to make it happen are leaders with vision. As a result, they see big possibilities out there, and focus relentlessly on how their message can have greater impact. The rest?
They keep putting it on the back burner.
In most cases, they can’t see the big possibilities, because the day to day small stuff is in their way. You act on what you see, and most leaders don’t know how to mange the small stuff so they can clearly see the big stuff. Writer and teacher Dallas Willard noticed that spiritual growth was similar. The reason we don’t have a more vital spiritual life is because what’s VISIBLE gets our attention over what’s INVISIBLE. Until we can manage that balance better, we’ll never grow deeper spiritually.
It’s about managing the small stuff so you can focus on the big stuff.
The question is, what’s the small things that are keeping you from accomplishing big things?
I’d love to hear what challenges you face…
