Do it right the first time: Always do your BEST: These are characteristics that are, or should be, COMMON for the successful LEADER. If you’re that Leader, then doing your best is mandatory, lest you won’t remain the Leader for too many cycles.
If you’re the Follower, then doing your best is mandatory, lest you won’t ever become a Leader. Furthermore, for both the Leader and the Follower, doing your best is mandatory BECAUSE God, who is the Great Leader, Teacher, and Motivator, requires it of us.
Colossians 3:23-23 – Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward.
2 Timothy 2:15 – Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
Be aware, too, that “doing your best” is ALSO mandatory in other aspects of daily living. In addition to one’s CAREER; one should also be the BEST husband (or wife), father, friend, and co-worker. There should be “no limitations” to doing your best.
The “best test” is this: In all that you want out of life… would you be content with having “2nd, or 3rd best.” …. Not likely. Then…by GIVING your BEST… there is the better likelihood of your receiving “The Best.”
