Do You Know What You Want to Have Accomplished By The End of Today?
“The Greatest Enemy to your Destination & Growth is Procrastination”
Keion Henderson, #ProjectLEAD2017
Procrastinators are obsessed with planning, because quite frankly planning does not involve doing, and doing is the Procrastinator’s Weakness. Do You Know What You Want to Have Completed By The End of Today? Are you clear about your current priorities? Have you set SMART GOALS for your Ministry, your Church, your Leaders, and or your other Business Endeavors?
Before starting your day, become crystal clear of the goals for that day. Determine whether you should be pursuing that goal at the current time. This may take you a considerable amount of time but it can save you much more time and frustration by eliminating goals that are not beneficial for you at this time and help you to identify tasks that need your immediate attention right now.
What type of Goals Should I set?
Your goal must be specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely.
Break your goals down into bite size pieces. Setting the bar too high may cause you to quit before you even begin. God is the only Source that creates trillion dollar dynasties overnight! You, my brother and my sister including myself will have to work for it.
Larger goals must be broken down into smaller parts to ensure daily accountability. You may have to build your church using a volunteer staff, long before you’re able to afford a budget for a fully staffed Music & Arts Department.
Identify how you benefit from the goals you set for yourself. People often fail to reach their goals because they concentrate on the costs as opposed to the benefits. The stress of what you may lose causes you to become stagnant and stuck. The Greatest Enemy to Your Destination & Growth is Procrastination!
