Communicate …. and keep on!


How can we get what we want in life if we don’t communicate what we want clearly? We all have a general idea of what we want and the direction we want to go, but few of us take the time to reflect on these ideas.  If we do take the time, we will be able to communicate in a clear and concise way that can be understood.  If we want to be leaders, we have to communicate clearly because that’s the only way anybody knows whether or not they want to follow us.


I have heard it said that amateurs are vague but professionals communicate clearly.  Through this lens I can see that I have much room for improvement.

I read an article by Donald Miller this week that sparked some thoughts as he asked questions similar to these.

1. Do I know what your group members are hoping to get out of your time together?
2. Have you communicated to my group members what you want for them (as opposed to what I want from them)?
3. Does your entire group understand the role of 4G Relationships in their personal growth?

As we understand that casting a compelling vision is a key component of good leadership, let us all be challenged to communicate … and keep on!
