Saw an interesting tweet recently that I thought deserved some consideration. Here’s the quote that made up the body of the tweet:
Dissatisfaction and discouragement are not caused by the absence of things but by the absence of vision. — Anonymous
This quote tracks one of my favorite Bible verses: “Where there is no vision, the people perish; but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” (Proverbs 29:18, KJV)
In my 31+ years as a husband, my 28 years as an attorney, and my 27 years as a dad, the most effective leadership advice I’ve ever known is from the Bible. It’s been as true for for me when providing corporate leadership as it has been when I am leading my family.
Often imitated, never improved upon. Thousands of years old, and yet as relevant today as……well, as a minutes-old tweet.
Yes, God knows a thing or two about human nature.
