As leaders, we have a finite amount of energy.
We either use that energy wisely or waste it. And one thing for sure, we never get it back.
Each day presents us with 24 hours in which our physical, mental, spiritual and emotional capacity is packaged. That capacity is dispersed through our God-given human energy. At the end of each day, our batteries need to be recharged.
There are some responsibilities you carry as a leader that tend to zap and drain your energy more than others. Things like a confrontational conversation that carries emotional intensity, or working on complex details of your church budget. But you must still do them anyway.
There are other things we do as leaders that consume and deplete our energy that we don’t have to do, and in fact, should stop doing.
