Don’t overthink it. Simplify it.

It’s no wonder overthinking leaves you drained. It’s mental exhaustion on the level of running a marathon every day.

Most of all there is a danger in making slow decisions!

Here are 3 dangers of SLOW:

1) One is paralysis by analysis.

2) MORE stress.

3) Missed opportunity.

Sometimes you don’t need more information to make a decision.

Colin Powell said, “70% of the facts, that’s enough to make a decision.” If you keep just going slow, you keep overthinking it – you get paralyzed by analysis.

Overthinking is all about dredging up the past and/or borrowing trouble from the future. The best cure for overthinking is to simplify and be present. Be here right now.

There’s a strategic concept around this importance of SPEED. As church leaders, we need to have a diverse tool kit of ideas and strategies to tackle the common challenges we face every day – like overthinking critical decisions.

I’ve been a long-time student (Okay, you can call it an obsession) of these kinds of ideas and strategies – and have spent hundreds of hours pouring through books, case studies and most importantly – field testing with my own ministries – to boil it all down to the 10 strategic concepts that will best help YOU and YOUR CHURCH.

These strategic – and Biblical – concepts will guide you from where you are to where God wants you to be. I promise you they will give you more time, energy and attention – with a whole lot less stress!

I invite you today to join me on a detailed tour in my brand new resource, 10 Advanced Strategic Concepts, where I explain them in great detail, and specifically how you can apply each concept to your ministry. I’ve become something of a master at using just the right strategic concept for each situation you’re in. Whether it’s issues with your worship planning, systems, staffing, sermon development or volunteers – you’ll have just the right tool for each particular situation.

You’ll explore Biblical concepts like the Law of Spiritual Readiness where you will realize just how much our own preparation matters in receiving God’s blessing.

You’ll look at the power of prayer in a new way – where and how you should be praying to gain a new perspective on what God is doing and what you should be doing.

These strategic and Biblical concepts are shortcuts that don’t short cut your results! They are designed to help you:

  • Make wiser decisions
  • Make faster decisions
  • Have a greater impact
  • Increase your efficiency
  • Enhance your performance
  • Accomplish more in less time
  • They help you do all of this with less stress!

By adding these powerful tools to your leadership tool kit, you’ll have a tactical solution to address any pressing problem in your ministry – so you can accomplish even greater things for the Kingdom.
