Thought for the day

"Another goal killer is perfection analysis.  AI can=t get started with my goal because all the conditions aren=t perfect.@  If you are looking for the perfect scenario before you get started, you will put it off forever.  And if you put off forever what you were inspired by God to do, does that glorify God?

If perfection paralysis has stopped you from moving forward, you need to change the way you think.  Waiting until all the conditions surrounding your life=s goals are perfect is not sensible and responsible, it is vain and foolish.  It is just one more excuse that keeps you from moving forward with your life=s plans.  Perfection is not an option, but having a: realistic - measurable - specific - action oriented - time bound goal, is an option.  It=s all about perspective.  God-thinking doesn=t listen to the world.  God-thinking listens to God."
