Stay Focused!

No matter what your goal is, the most important thing you can do is stay focused. Regardless of what happens, don't ever stop asking, "Is there a better way?" You can't pray for progress and fight change. President Andrew Jackson once wrote to Martin Van Buren (Governer or New York at the time) requesting that we continue using the canal system in the US vs. the new invention of the railroad. I wonder what Mr. Jackson would think today if he knew about the speed of trains or automobiles or the height and speed of planes.

Or how about palm pilots and notebook computers? Instant connection to anyone in the world through a wire. And so many other inventions that have happened in the last 30 years.

God is the author of all true progress. A better way probably always exists. It's our job to be open to new ideas and never doubt God's influence in the inspiration behind an invention. And whatever God has called you to it with all your heart.

Stay focused!
