Here’s five of the worst inventions of all time:
1. Inflatable dart boards
2. Solar powered flashlights
3. Submarine screen doors
4. A dictionary index
5. Helicopter ejection seats
It is doubtful any of those inventions could be considered a winner. You usually know it when you have a winner.
As Christians we understand a winner to be a project or effort especially blessed by the Lord. It is the thing you know He definitely wants you to pursue.
One of the keys to effective time management is giving as much time as possible to your winners. When you know you are on to something that could have great results for your business your family or the work of the Lord, you have to make a concerted effort to carve out time to cultivate your winner. They usually require extra time in the beginning, but in the long term winners are the ones with the greatest payoff that give the most satisfaction. Giving time to your winners is how you redeem the time.
