DO Something Devotional
Do you have a track record of completing what you start? Why is it important to finish what you start? Let’s take a step backwards and reflect. Who would knowingly drive over an unfinished bridge; ride on a “nearly” finished plane; or pay for a half-baked cake? Not me! Yes, there are varying levels of risk in these examples, but the principle is constant. Completion is a critical measure of performance and expectation.
Completion requires commitment, focus, and time. That’s why it’s so important to identify those actions most aligned with your God-led goals and invest your time in completing them. A key to completing goals that appear intimidating is to break the goals into smaller achievable steps. These steps can then be broken down into discrete daily actions to include in your “To Do” list.
If perfectionism is a barrier to completion for you, consider adopting a “satisficer” mindset that Dr. Barry Schwartz coined as a hybrid of the words “satisfy” and “suffice”. Valorie Burton, renowned personal and executive coach, explains a “satisficer” as one who determines to select the first action meeting one’s minimum standard for satisfaction. This enables you to complete actions acceptably and move on to other actions requiring your attention. All actions aren’t equally important and surely all aren’t deserving of huge amounts of thought and time. Selecting a pair of shoes and choosing an investment plan probably require significantly different levels of analysis and research… I’m just saying…
