Focusing on goals

Sunday, January 06, 2008

The sermon today talked about focus, about how our goals have to be Specific, Measurable, come with an Action plan, Realistic, have a Time frame, be planned with Expectation management and with Revelation, or SMARTER. This sermon is pretty standard stuff, but pastor added some new parts to it at the end.

We need goals so that we can focus on them, to have a place to concentrate our energy on. The opposite of focus, is DISTRACTION! So pastor was sharing about some of the things we mustn't do.

1) Don't get distracted by INTERIM SUCCESSES John 3:22
Jesus was focussed on his calling, not on the seeming success of his baptism ministry.

2) Don't get distracted by COMPETITION John 21:17-22
Regardless of what your rivals are doing, focus your energy on achieving your goal.

3) Don't get distracted by the PAIN OF LIFE Heb 12:1-2
Always keep your eyes on the important thing.

I was really encouraged by it. Now it's time I penned down all my goals.

Oh, trip back to KL was fun, tiring but pretty enjoyable I guess...
