Leaders do not have the privilege of a mood.
Most of us have asked a similar question, "Is it safe to go visit with the boss? What kind of mood is he in today?"
Effective leaders strive for consistency. Precision is the goal. A key ingredient to quality decision making is objectivity.
Perhaps, how we feel about an issue is the cause of mood vibrations.
Good thinking crashes a mood party. Clean thinking is unaffected by feelings.
When Martha mixed a recipe of mood into her service bowl, she became less effective. Jesus called her out on it.
"Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled by many things" (Luke 10:41).
Jesus called Martha into a deeper relationship with Himself while Mary sat mood-less at the feet of the Lord.
Anxiety is expressed in moodiness. It gets in the way of spiritual and marketplace progress.
Anxiety marks an independent man.
When we draw close to Jesus, we don't need a mood meter.
"Jesus answered her, 'Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed. And Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken from her'" (Luke 10:41-42).
PLATFORM TIP No. 130
Speed does not build a platform. Speed kills.
Hurry creates flurry, not engagement.
A platform is built with sustained, consistent effort.
Your audience comes to you every day for one message. Stay on point and deliver it every day.
Massive platforms are built one brick at a time.
