I can’t tell you how many of my tasks are overdue. You wouldn’t believe how many things are on my plate to get out. I’m not even sure how many balls are on my side of the court that are holding initiatives in my business up.
I have campaigns to launch, client deadlines to meet, new business opportunities to create plans for, and prospects to follow up with.
Oh, and not to mention, I have a personal life – you know… a wife, kids, working out, friends, and all of that.
And I forgot – I have a spiritual life that, at times, takes a back seat to all of the other priorities and deadlines I have to meet.
And putting God on the back-burner is precisely the problem with the hurry and rush of being a business owner.
All of us Christian entrepreneurs have an enemy in our life that wants to rob our businesses blind. This enemy disguises himself to steal our love, our joy, and our peace.
If this enemy can distract us long enough, we can all-together forget about leading a God-First business.
The enemy is RUSH.
I’ve heard it said before that if the devil can’t make you sin, he’ll make you busy. Busyness in business causes almost everything to be in “rush mode". Rushing is precisely where the enemy gets us to fail because it cuts off our relationship with God, other people, and our own Spirit.
The ruthless elimination of rush will be one of the most significant challenges and accomplishments a Godpreneur can tackle so that the journey isn’t as burdensome as it feels right now.
