Continued from previous article.
This is a learnable skill.
You can learn this.
Solomon said even a child is known by his doing whether his work is pure, whether it be right.
If a child can do this you can too!
So do you see a man diligent in his business?
A man that's smart working, that's persistent, that does pure work that does effective work.
That does leveraged work.
That is a good steward of his time.
Now, suppose you look at anyone throughout history, who has had massive, enduring success.
In that case, they're operating based on this principle, whether they know it or not, whether they're believers or not. And you can see this very, very clearly.
All you have to do is look.
Incredibly, it's very, very rare for people to apply biblical diligence in their business.
But if you look at people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, John D. Rockefeller, Sam Henry Ford, Sam Walton, Walt Disney, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos, Steven Spielberg, Dave Ramsey, S. Truett Cathy.
These are just a few of these people that have used this principle.
Now, let's translate this into action.
When I see people trying to start their business, I see them hungry for information.
Or they have a bias towards action, so they just start taking action.
It's imperfect and can make a mess, or they can go down or kind of a wrong pathway, or I see the other side, which is people who are consuming information with lack of action, right?
So the two ditches on each side, are massive action and low information. So it's not effective action.
And the other ditch is massive information, low action.
Do you learn "just in time," or "just in case" and what that means is many people I found consume the information they're learning "just in case" they maybe need it some day.
YouTube videos, blog posts, Facebook groups, email newsletters, Twitter accounts, Lives, webinars, videos...
Oh, someday I might need this, or this might come in handy down the road.
Someday I might use this..
And it's mentally stimulating.
But it's not biblical.
Do you think Dave Ramsey spends time on YouTube learning how to grow his company?
Can you see Jeff Bezos in Facebook groups looking for information?
If they don't, why do you?
I heard it said that it's like mental masturbation, it feels good but it really doesn't produce much.
You want to always learn "just in time."
What that means is that you learn the thing, and the only thing you need to do to take the next action, you learn just enough to take action.
And then you take that action, because it's in doing, or it's in this diligence that we just talked about, that learning and profit emerge.
And in business, the data tells you what to do.
You can't steer a parked car.
So you need to get an action mode to get feedback.
To be continued...
Have a blessed day!
