Extending Our Comfort Zone…

Success in leadership depends on the ability, or maybe the flexibility, to recognize the limits of our comfort zone and how life begins at that point. Neale Donald Walsch said, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. So if you’re feeling uncomfortable right now, know that the change taking place in your life is a beginning, not an ending.”

Leadership operates the same. We are not talking unscriptural changes, but when ideas and plans are introduced that make us uncomfortable, maybe life is just beginning.

Unscriptural or Uncomfortable…

A thin line exists between the two and leaders are challenged to recognize the difference. How?

Know the book. When knowledge of God’s word is weak, leaders will not know if something is Biblical or not.

Seek wisdom through prayer. This is not a prayer before a meeting, but a “without ceasing” approach to seek God’s guidance.

Ask the right questions. Asking why we do something opens a door to greater understanding.

Be patient. Decisions should rarely be made in one meeting. Give it time, but be careful not to procrastinate.

A few steps will help us determine the difference in what is unscriptural versus uncomfortable.
