I don't mind doing tasks. I love lists.
The problem comes when there are tasks on my list that make me freeze. The tasks that I don't enjoy, have difficulty understanding how to execute, and the tasks that require more than a few hours, stop me in my task-completing tracks - I freeze.
Once my questions are answered, I begin steps toward starting the task, or submit to the time issue, I always feel better. Isn't that the truth for most things we do in life?
I work for the king of relationships. Truly. He is all about building and developing relationships. I love people and finding out more about them since I am so curious. However, building new relationships, that may require something other than what is comfortable for me, can hinder my relationship building, unfortunately.
I am often too concerned with the "Can I keep the conversation going for an entire lunch hour?" or "Why would they want to hang out with me?" questions, that I have a tendency to avoid the situation.
I need to make a change. I need to start and finish tasks no matter how difficult or confusing them seem.
I will ask the lonely women who lost her husband a few years ago on a lunch outing.
I will make a better effort to begin new relationships with my co-workers.
Jesus was all about relationships. I have a lot to learn from the master. He's is the best teacher ever!
