The 57 Rules of Success
#1. Deliver the goods.
#2. The other 56 don’t matter.
I’m not sure I would agree 100% with that little summary of success, but it does make a valid point. We as Christians must make sure we can deliver the goods.
When someone asks you for help with a project that will require your time, it’s easy to say “yes,” but often a lot harder to keep your promise. That’s why we must learn to be selective with what projects we say yes to and then devote whatever time is needed to delivering the goods on the ones we choose.
What projects are on your plate right now. What activities can you schedule today to move them forward. Remember, if you’re not delivering the goods God calls you to deliver, you’re not redeeming the time.
