Do you know about the power of focus to create momentum? You certainly know the word focus. You probably know the definition of focus. But have you ever really seen focus in action? Have you ever seen the game-changing power of focus to create momentum?
Focus is almost always the opposite of what ministry looks like for most of us. It requires a discipline that is extremely challenging and a determined resolve that is like titanium. Focus is about saying no to many things so you can say yes to one thing.
We add the power of focus when we reduce all communication to a single message. We add intensity to focus when we repeat a single message over many weeks.
We're seeing the fruit of intense focus at Canyon Ridge right now. For weeks we've only talked about our upcoming church-wide campaign (Transformed). We began hinting at it and teasing it in June and through August it became more and more intense every week. Three successive message series have included participating in Transformed as a key takeaway.
On the eve of the launch we've just ordered another 1500 books and another 200 DVDs.
We use a church-wide campaign every fall. It is a core strategy for spiritual growth. We put a lot of energy into it every year.
But there is no comparison between this years' momentum and sense of anticipation and any of the three previous attempts.
What's different? Intense focus.
Are you leveraging the game-changing power of intense focus? Saying no to many things so you can say yes to the most important thing? Or still saying yes to too many things, diffusing your energy?
