“Those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies have no sense.” (Pro 12:11)

There is always something enticing about the latest idea, the new venture that is still shiny in its new box. We can spend a lot of time on the new when the slightly old has lost its shine.

There is a time to explore new opportunities, and there is a time for good, old-fashioned, hard graft where we knuckle down and work hard on what we already have.

In its extreme, the entrepreneurial spirit can be distracted by the next idea while the last one dies on the shelf for lack of focus and resources. Sometimes we need to complete the last venture and not start a new thing.

Quick Prayer: Keep me focused on the task at hand please, Holy Spirit. Amen.
