The Book in Three Sentences
- “Any time you sincerely want to make a change, the first thing you must do is to raise your standards and believe you can meet them”.
- “We must change our belief system and develop a sense of certainty that we can and will meet the new standards before we actually do”.
- “It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently”.
The workbook approach used here will move you beyond simply labeling words to an understanding of how the di¡erent pieces of a sentence ¢t together.To help you achieve this understanding, we present information in small steps, with many opportunities to apply each newpiece of information in exercises before youmove on to the next step.
The knowledge base is growing (in fact exponentially), information technology does operate faster and requires less and less space, the economy is global and interdependent. Short is not the only one to attest to these notions. In fact, one widely referenced source which highlights these ideas as fact is Thomas Freidman’s (2005) The World is Flat. Pink stated likewise in his 2008 address to the NASSP convention audience: technology and off-shore outsourcing will increasingly continue to replace routine work where there are clear black and white answers and logical sequentially reached solutions. For instance, witness the recent
development and explosive sales of software products such as those to complete one’s taxes or basic legal documents.
Leadership in the Twenty-first century means leading under intense conditions; today’s markets and people are different than their counterparts of 20 years ago. Managers and employees are faced with new challenges, have other goals and interests, live in another environment, and they define themselves and their work differently than the generation before them did. Before getting to the topic of leading, I would first like to briefly outline the most important basic social and economic conditions. This can of course be nothing more than a general outline, as, beyond its increasing complexity and acceleration, the Twenty-first century is especially characterized by one trend: change.
I love Advent because it reminds us that Jesus is Emmanuel— God with us. He is the ultimate ruler—the King of kings and Lord of lords. While we do not know the future, we know the one who does. This Advent, we as a church are going to explore the difference that Jesus makes in our everyday lives.
Today’s passage is from the Gospel of Matthew which begins with a long genealogy of Jesus, reminding us of the long, complicated history of the nation of Israel and the many ups and downs, twists and turns they experienced. And as we reflect on this amazing work of God in history, the story takes another turn. It is
as if the curtain opens on a grand drama that is at play, and then the spotlight focuses on one man named Joseph experiencing a great difficulty and dilemma.
Dave Ramsey talks about common sense: avoid buying on credit, pay cash for everything possible, get yourself out of debt and build an emergency fund. Rather than airy-fairy promises and feel-good anecdotes, he offers solid basic advice for the everyman and everywoman.
Likewise, the literature on leadership is enormous and expanding apace. A search of the Amazon.com website in the spring of 2003 using the single word ‘leadership’ netted an overwhelming 11,686 results. This testifies, if nothing else, to the cultural significance of this concept at least in the minds of authors, archivists and editors. Notably, however, a search of ‘leadership and development’ only secured 4.8 per cent of the total results. This suggests that the ways in which leadership qualities might be produced carry considerably less popular appeal than the wider leadership mystique.
Smith Wigglesworth was installing some plumbing in a large house one day and the lady of the family came in, watched awhile, and then left. Finally, the woman came back into the room and locked the door. She asked Wigglesworth if he would tell her something. She asked, “What in the world is it that causes that wonderful expression on your face? You look as if you are full of joy.” He then told her that at breakfast that morning, his wife had come downstairs and informed him that two of their children were very ill. He said that before they even ate, they went upstairs, laid hands on their children, and they were instantly healed. Wigglesworth was just so happy because he had asked and had received. His joy was full.
