When Melissa and I got a fryer a couple of Christmas’s ago, we immediately began to fry EVERYTHING.
After a week or two, we started to think about how easy it is to fry something instead of cooking it the right way and the healthy way.
In leadership, we can’t always fry everything…
- Developing people takes time and patience.
- Culture change takes time and patience.
- Seeing God’s vision fulfilled in our organization/church takes time.
- Seeing God’s vision fulfilled in our lives takes time.
Don’t try to fry what has to cook.
Sure, we can take shortcuts and give the appearance of progress, but in the end, it’s not healthy.
Sometimes we have to pray hard, listen intently, get our hands dirty, and show some patience.
You can’t fry everything!
