Executive Focus

11 Jun

To walk on water, keep focused on Jesus.

Do not overwork to be rich (Proverbs 23:4a)

How is your focus?

While searching for yesterday’s Link of the Day, I came across a good article titled “Executive Focus: How leaders lose it, and how to regain it.” The following two paragraphs is how that begins:

“A change has occurred in the landscape of business leadership. The challenges that executives face today are more numerous, varied, and complex than ever before. These forces have changed rapidly in recent years, and are having a dramatic impact on the lives of senior leaders and their ability to succeed in their roles.”

“At the heart of the issue is the absence of sufficient opportunity to focus. Focus, as defined here, is the in-depth, accurate, and truthful consideration of issues and priorities. These issues may be related to tasks, objectives, people, business, or self. As roles grow in complexity and leaders become inundated with information, the opportunity to reflect thoughtfully can be lost almost completely. When this lack of opportunity to focus persists over time, a deleterious effect occurs which can cause significant lapses in judgment and performance; objectives critical to personal and business success are compromised.”

I’m learning that the best way to obtain sustainable change in my life is with a one-on-one coach. That’s why I recently began the Accelerated Coach Training (ACT) course offered by Lifeforming Leadership Coaching [www.lifeformingcoach.com]. In retrospect, I can see that the Holy Spirit told me 2007 was to be a year of Sabbath rest to refine my focus.

Prayer Power
Heavenly Father, it’s my heart desire to have laser sharp focus on Your assignment for my life by keeping my eyes focused on Jesus each and every day. Make my priorities Your priorities. Teach me to delegate appropriately. Thy will be done in my life. Thank You Jesus. Amen.

There is tremendous power in a testimony. “And they overcame him (the devil) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” – Revelations 12:11
