In life generally not just in business, the more strategic we are in our plans, the more likely we are to come up with better ways of doing things and the easier it becomes to deal with situations that may go pear shaped because we have already planned in advance for these events. Sometimes however, life will deal you the 'surprise' card but it should not be a regular occurrence if we are proactive and thinking analytically, logically & systematically.

In my teens, I considered poetry really boring. I love to read fiction, I think I have read every book of Danielle Steel, John Grisham, Jeffrey Archer and quite a lot of others that I can't even remember. Wow, how can I forget the 'mills & boon' days 😀. Poetry however was never my thing. But now, I can actually read and enjoy reading poetry and I actually follow a poet on instagram Pierre Jeanty. And this is a piece of what he wrote....
Nice right? 😀

‘Be clean, you who bear the vessels of the LORD.’
One day a man was getting his windscreen washed at a petrol station. When the attendant finished, the man said, ‘That’s a terrible job. Re-do my windscreen - it’s as dirty as when you started.’ So, the attendant wiped it again. The man looked it over and in frustration said, ‘That window hasn’t changed a bit.’ The man’s wife was sitting next to him in the car fuming. She reached over, pulled off his glasses, wiped them, and gave them back to him. The attendant had been doing his job correctly. The man himself was the problem all along. Spiritually speaking, the glasses you’re looking through determine what you see, and how you see it.
When you look through the lens of jealousy and envy, you become resentful of the blessings of others. When you look through the lens of judgementalism, you speak and act without mercy and grace. When you look through the lens of fear and unbelief, you limit God and forfeit what He can do for you. When you look through the lens of selfishness, you put yourself first and your loved ones suffer. When you look through the lens of negativity and cynicism, people begin to avoid you because you’re not enjoyable to be around. ‘Be clean, you who bear the vessels of the LORD.’ Just as your glasses need to be wiped clean from the contamination around you, so do your heart and mind. How does this happen? Jesus said, ‘Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you’ (John 15:3 KJV). Through prayer and daily Bible reading, your perspective on life is kept right.
