Have you ever been working on a project or listening to someone talk, then your mind starts to wander? You start thinking about other things and you forget about the project at hand or the person you are talking to.
It has happen to all of us. It’s part of our nature when we become too busy for our own good.
Just the other day, my youngest son and I were playing together. In the middle of our ball throwing, I started thinking about some work initiatives. I was still throwing the ball and physically present, but I was absent in spirit and mind. He had called my name several times. I ended up apologizing for not giving him and our ball throwing my undivided attention. Since he is only two years old, he didn’t think anything about it and continued to say what he was attempting say before I lost focus.
How many times do we lose focus with our spouses, children, colleagues, supervisors, etc.?
No matter the age, it is never justifiable not pay attention to someone who is expecting your undivided attention. Our Wednesday meditation discusses a focus that will bless every part of our lives as leaders.
The focus I’m talking about is the connection between God and us.
The key to success starts with the Creator of all things. Proverbs 1:7 says,
“The reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord is the starting point and essence of knowledge, but fools despise or ignore skillful and Godly wisdom, instruction, and discipline.”
As leaders, our best chance of succeeding starts with the Lord of lords, Master of masters, King of kings, and the Wise of the wisest.
Please don’t get me wrong; I don’t think you have to walk around screaming the Lord’s name. It’s your spirit of calmness that screams out the name of the Lord.
As leaders, we have to discover a way to relax and focus on God. Life is busy, which is why we need God to continue to give us fresh vision in the present of our future and a detailed focus of caring for the present plans and problems.
If we are paying close enough attention to God, it will be quite easy to give the projects and people in your life an undivided attention.
“Look to the Lord and His strength; seek his face always.” - Psalm 105:4
