In this age of internet products; cell phones, and electronic note books – Ideas, time, and focus are precious commodities, and the delicate balance between “all of these”… are, too often, ABSOLUTE. Failing in any one of these is….likely…FAILURE…for all.
Time is critical… in getting your idea into production, adequate inventory, media exposure, marketing, financing, and signing the deal…the Big Sale. Fail one…fail all….lost opportunity…lost job(s).
Even under the severity of these, many CEO’s have bit the dust. We all remember HP’s Carly Fiorina who hit bottom, too soon… I think. And further… evidenced proved by, Marissa Meyer, who replaced Yahoo’s Carol Bartz and Scott Thompson…leaving blood all over the internet landscape. Only to sell out to Verizon, as scheduled in early 2017… for 4.8 BILLION. Lucky for MM…she’ll get somewhere around $123 MILLION for her trouble….a lot of $$ for semi-failure.
Ecclesiastes 9:10 – Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do [it] with thy might; for [there is] no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
Lost focus from a “spiritual perspective,” is also a drastic and dramatic failure. We, because we are made in His Image, are born in the VICTORY column. To FAIL…we must choose to FAIL.
1 John 5:4-5 – For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
