“Practice makes perfect” is a common expression to most. Recently, someone added that “perfect practice makes perfect.” Regardless, the idea expresses the need to do something over and over again, until the art is right.
The level of perfection may be subjective to each individual. However, the need for practice must be a part of our growth and development as leaders.
Olympic athletes are groomed from a young age. The drills, routines, or exercises are perfected through hours of daily practice. Their life is dedicated to one purpose, performing for those few minutes without giving way to pressure.
Doing, action, application, and preparation are all terms associated with practice. No longer is about theory, but method. Here is where the rubber meets the road and details are worked out for implementation.
Several qualities of a leader may actually be inherent, but one thing is certain, developing the ability to lead must be worked on continually.
We need to be focused, dedicated, diligent, and steadfast to the one purpose that God has called us for, and lead others for His cause.
