Leadership Minute: Your Task at Hand


Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks. – Phillips Brooks

What is your BHAD (Big Hairy Audacious Dream)? You see I am convinced that many a leader settles for that which they know they can achieve. And while that may be good and noble it’s not big. It’s not audacious. It’s not far-reaching enough and does not necessitate much prayer. I’d like to challenge you today to have such a BHAD that is scares you to pray like you have never prayed before. Reverse your prayers for strength to do what you can do and pray for strength and wisdom to do what you know you can’t do by yourself and without divine intervention. Increase the size of your dream. Dare to pray big prayers and dare to do great things.
