There are three factors that distinguish those who fail to complete their mission from those who succeed. A watchman must be able to clearly state their mission. Develop the necessary leadership skills. And possess the necessary discipline and work ethic to complete the task. It would appear that the first step is to have clarity about the mission. However, so much time and money are invested in undefined projects. While it is true that you do not need to fully comprehend the mission before beginning. However, when you know too little, you set yourself up for failure. It is difficult to carry out a mission that you do not understand.
If you have trouble stating the exact impact it will have, you should work on your mission statement more. Here are some questions to help you gain a better understanding of your mission. What exactly is the problem you are attempting to resolve? Can you describe your solution from beginning to end? What will your world be like when you implement your solution? How much effort would be required? What is your strategy for funding or attracting resources for this project? Again, you may not have all of the answers, but thinking about it helps.
Hebrews 6:12 (ESV) says, “so that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” There is always a tendency to underestimate the amount of effort required to win. You are more likely to attribute other people’s success to luck or a special spiritual gift. This prevents you from believing that working harder will help you achieve better results. Creating a poor work ethic in your workplace. What you need to do is set high expectations for yourself. Look for elite performers who have successfully completed their mission at a high level. Do not be lazy; rather, emulate their discipline and work ethic. A clear mission combined with visionary leadership and a strong work ethic is a winning combination.
