From Pastor Edwards 7 SECRETS IN BECOMING A HIGH ACHIEVER I get asked frequently: Pastor, how do you get so much done and still take care of yourself and your family? Honestly, I never feel I’ve accomplished as much as I would like, but after receiving the question so many times, perhaps I should attempt to answer. I do have a lot of responsibility. I pastor a large church…undergoing transition and change. I have an active (some would say over-active) online presence. I frequently take on extra writing projects and speaking opportunities, which usually keeps me doing something different every week. And, I strive to be the person, husband and father my congregation could seek to follow. As I’ve reflected of what helps me accomplish much, here are 7 thoughts: My 7 secrets to being a high achiever: I’m intentional – That’s probably number one. I strive to live my life for a purpose and that carries over into everything that I do. I don’t sit still long – I love a busy life but I take time to enjoy life. Again, I don’t sit still long but I do sit still. I exercise –I’ve learned that the more out of shape I am the less effective I am in all that I attempt to do. It impacts me physically, emotionally and spiritually when I skip my time exercising. I work from a plan – Whether it’s long-term or short-term planning, I try to have one. I begin most every Monday morning (or sometimes Sunday nights) planning the week ahead. I take advantage of opportunities – Did you catch that? It is not complicated, but it is a powerful principle. Networking. Delegation. Time-management. Learning something new. Cultivating dead times. I try to stay ahead – This is hard. I’m a procrastinator by nature too, but the more I can, I try to stay one step ahead of the snowballs in my schedule. I prioritize – I say NO often. It’s not a sin to say NO. I have come to the realization that I can’t do everything or be everywhere.
