The Danger in Getting Things Right


Making changes in a ministry and seeing success based on those changes isn’t my ultimate “win” as a leader. If it is, then I’ll never change things again after immediate success has been reached. That’s a problem because one day the changes I made will need to be changed again . . . and again and again and again.

For this very reason it’s imperative that as a leader I recognize the true win as it relates to making changes. The win from change isn’t the potential success that follows, but instead, the fact that I was simply willing to make changes and experiment with new ideas in the first place. 

Since this mindset isn’t based on chasing after success I find myself free from the fear of failure. I’m embracing a desire to always be on the lookout for new ways of doing things, and I’m viewing failure as a wonderful learning experience that can spur new and even greater ideas for change.
