Think Ahead

Originally posted on Swerve by Bobby Gruenewald on June 17th, 2010.

Successful people are often great at anticipating.

•If you want to be promoted as an assistant, anticipate how you can better serve your boss.
•If you want to be successful in business, anticipate what the market will do.
•If you want to be successful in church, prayerfully anticipate. What new thing is God going to bless?
I try to think ahead by asking questions like these:

•How are people relating differently? What will relationships and community look like in two years?
•How are people going to communicate in the future?
•What future technology/innovation can help spread the gospel?
•What trends (business, entertainment, philanthropy, etc.) will affect the church?
Think ahead.
