Too many times we put forth just enough effort to get by, not to do it right, and certainly not to excel.
John Wooden once asked, “If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?”
As spiritual leaders, the results of only doing enough to get by are tragic. Souls are at stake! If we fail to do it right, there may never be enough time to do it over. We may only have one chance to make a good first impression.
Recognize the need, but also the urgency, to do it right the first time.
