Do What You Have To…

MOVEmentum Challenge #4

We’ve all been in the position where we were asked to perform meaningless tasks. The very thought would provoke frustration, which in turn would negatively impact our productivity. But what if we could change our perspective towards the task at hand? Then we would be able to recognize the greater purpose behind it. For example, you may not be working your dream job, but you are earning a steady income. Could it be that the income earned from your current job could possibly help finance your dream? Or maybe you’ve decided to return to school, but the idea of homework seems tedious right now. Is it possible that earning your degree will position you for financial increase and promotion? Remember, this is only a season. In order to do what you desire, you must discipline yourself to do what is necessary… now!

Challenge 4: Think of 2-3 tasks that you need to complete, but you’ve dreaded doing. Make an effort to change your perspective towards the task(s) by evaluating the purpose behind it. Use the following questions as a guide:

  • What are the immediate benefits of completing this task? Short-term and long-term?
  • What strengths or skills can you develop as a result of performing this task?
  • How can those strengths and skills prepare you for your future desire?

Be sure to share your thoughts with us. Your tips and ideas will inspire someone else.

In Him… Live. Move. Become.
