It’s all about timing. When leadership faces decisions, a critical question that must be considered involves timing. Is this the right time?
More than a few leaders have struggled with challenges resulting from the right decision at the wrong time.
The power of leadership is demonstrated when the right decision is made at the right time.
Biblically, Jesus always said and did the right things at the right time. As well, we find His timing was always based on God’s time.
How do we learn to make the right decisions at the right time?
Begin with prayer. We need to consult the One who knows the past, present and future, seeking guidance in the decisions we need to make.
Counsel the wisdom of others. Nothing is new under the sun. Therefore, others before us who have faced similar decisions should be consulted before making a decision.
Admit a wrong decision. Never try to deny, ignore, or blame others for wrong decisions. Own up to the mistake and move forward.
Timing can make or break leaders. Value is found in seeking a path to aid our success.
