Thursday Quote – When Less is More (Andy Stanley)

 
Andy Stanley

Andy Stanley hits another home run in his two part podcast series entitled “When Less Is More”. These two audio clips are each about 20 minutes long and well worth listening to. Here’s the deal. You are spending way too much of your time doing things that you were never designed to do. I guarantee that you will be challenged and motivated anew to PERSONALLY “do what only you can do because the less you do the more you accomplish.”

Quote 1: “Leaders forget to distinguish between their authority and their core competencies. Every leader has authority over things they’re no good at. When you forget to distinguish between your authority and your core competencies, you will leverage your authority, because you’re the authority, in areas where you are no good and you will miss-leverage your authority.”

Quote 2: “Stress is often related to what you are doing, not how much you are doing. When you’re in your sweet spot, you can’t get enough. When you’re outside your sweet spot you want to get out of the ministry. The reason you are so worn out is, not so much because of how much you have to do, but because you’re spending so much time in areas you have no business in . . . it sucks the life out of you.”
