Simplify to Energize
Sir Isaac Newton wrote, “Truth is ever to be found in simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things.” Designing and leading both virtual and in-person worship has become the new norm for church leaders, and worship has grown increasingly complex. Multiplicity and confusion define many of our days. In our coaching work, we’re finding that a return to simplicity and focus is the first and most important step to re-energizing your ministry and your worship.

After watching the video, sit down, take a few deep breaths, and take 3-5 minutes to focus on what matters most to you, your church, and the community you serve. Allow this clarified focus to help you narrow down the long task lists and complex calendars you undertake each week. Finally, when facing the activities that come your way, follow these three steps of simplifying to energize:
1. Focus on one thing at a time.
2. Start only one thing at a time.
3. Shed old tasks to make room for the new things you’re adding.
If finding or sticking to your focus is increasingly a challenge, a good coach can help you chart your path and stay on track. Contact us if you would like to explore where we can help you and your leadership.
