Why do we do what we do?

with one comment

I posted a few notes yesterday from Mavericks at Work.

One thing that I have noticed about all the successful companies that are profiled in the book is that they all know why they do what they do…….They all have a clear sense of purpose.

A few quotes from the book…..

– If everybody is selling the same thing, what’s the tie-breaker? It’s purpose.

– At the heart of every great company is a clear sense of purpose.

– The companies that get in trouble are the ones that are mushy about who they are.

My incredible wife, Jennifer, demonstrates this concept each weekend as a staff member of the Children’s Ministry at our church, Fellowship of The Woodlands. Each Sunday morning, she gathers a team of volunteers and reminds them why they do what they do.

She reminds them that they are planting the seed of God’s love as the children grow spiritually in a safe and secure environment while allowing the parents to hear God’s word without distraction.

Purpose is powerful.

Does your organization, team, staff, ministry need to be reminded why they do what they do?
