Forbes magazine published an article about the dangers of “shiny object syndrome.” Chasing after the shiny objects that present themselves in business can lead to challenges that clutter and distract from the mission.
New technology, new training systems, new opportunities or products to add to your business will always be available to explore. Living with a laser focus is the key to selecting the appropriate shiny objects to pursue.
Proverbs 4:25 says, “Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you.”
Chasing after shiny objects not only distracts the business but also detracts from maturing in our faith.
Keeping a laser focus on what is ahead is not an easy task and requires discipline. Discipline pays off by providing greater bandwidth to focus on the business essentials.
