Applying Biblical Principles to the Workplace (Part III)

The last principle on this series is focus. Life is not always easy. So much happens that is out of our control that it becomes very difficult to keep going. We’re bombarded daily with things that present themselves as priorities when in reality they are the result of poor planning. As much as I enjoy being in control, I’ve had to learn that the only thing I can control is how I react. When I’m focused, I can handle the distractions because I have my goals and I know what I really need to be doing. When I’m not focused, I get carried away with every priority that presents itself as a priority.

I want to focus on personal development this time. The workplace is moving at a rapid pace and if we don’t keep moving forward, we’ll find ourselves falling behind. This requires us to keep growing. Personal development is basically about growing in knowledge and wisdom about yourself, your work, and the world around you. The Bible has many verses about wisdom and knowledge, telling us to seek both diligently and prize them like treasures.
Knowledge is the information you gather and learn. Knowledge is important because you see the reasons behind processes and you can come up with innovative and creative ideas for improvements.
