activity & accomplishment

By June 6, 2010Church, Leadership

It’s tempting, but don’t do it.  Never confuse activity for accomplishment.

Just because we’re busy doesn’t mean we’re being effective.  Although we might be buzzing around from event to event, commitment to commitment, busyness itself is not a guarantee that our quality of life (or quality of work) will be better.  In fact, it could be counterproductive.

An injured muscle needs time to heal.

Without enough time to rest, our best ideas may give way to just OK ideas; even worse, they might give way to really bad ideas.

Make it your goal to be effective, not just busy.
