What if working harder doesn’t work?

“It’s part common sense, part human nature to press on towards a break through. If we are not producing at work, we just work harder, longer hours. If our organization is not growing, we work the same plan harder. It seldom seems to occur to us that ‘more’ or ‘harder’ might not be the answer. Sometimes the only thing that works is ‘different.'” –Maurilio Amorim, CEO of the A Group

Check out the rest of Maurilio’s article. The problem, of course, is “different” is uncomfortable. We may prefer our current plan. We know it. We like it. We may not personally like the different plan, even if it could potentially have a bigger impact.

This is why many churches are stuck. “More” and “harder” are easy. “Different” requires real leadership.
