SECRETS OF PERSONAL EFFECTIVENESS
Acts 6:3-4 ERV “So, brothers and sisters, choose seven of your men who have a good reputation. They must be full of wisdom and the Spirit. We will give them this work to do. Then we can use all our time to pray and to teach the word of God.”
The amount of time you put into an endeavour determines the level of your effectiveness, success and excellence. The more time you devote to your assignment the better you become at it. Success is a journey. How much time you devote to your purpose determines how long it will take for you to succeed in it.
Focus is essential for progress. The apostles refused to be distracted from their primary duties. A lot of us are not as effective as we should be because we have made ourselves Jack of all trades. To run faster you must drop some weight.
Delegate. Don’t attempt to do everything even if you’re a superman. There are people in your life who are capable of handling certain responsibilities on your behalf; make use of them. If there are no capable hands then you must find teachable people with the right attitude who with time can handle those responsibilities. Cheers.
