I am constantly amazed how much I get accomplished when I have a checklist. When I take time to write down all I must do for the day, I not only get it done more quickly, but more efficiently, and I feel I have accomplished something at the end of the day.
Spiritual leaders need to form a checklist of far more than daily activities.
The list needs to involve the who and what for those who are led.
Who we are leading is crucial to understanding how we are going to lead.
What needs to be accomplished will address areas concerning the needs, abilities, opportunities, responsibilities, and dreams of others.
Considering the who and what leads to another crucial question, and that is why?
Why we lead helps us see more clearly the direction we need to take, and design a plan to help reach the destination.
There will always be more to examine. However, when we take a few simple ideas and ask ourselves the right questions, the checklist will lead to greater efficiency and accomplishment for the Lord.
