Quick results don’t promise quality
By Chardonnay Beaver
The urge to achieve is innate and good. We were all designed to be a solution in the lives of others. Whether that truth is actualized in your life, it is tangible regardless of your background. However, today, the motives that fuels one's desire to achieve are often contaminated.
Some seek to achieve in order to ‘prove’ their abilities to those who doubted them. Whereas, others seek to achieve because their accomplishment implies something about their character.
The ‘need to achieve’ has become a fixed agenda that lacks substance and negates fulfillment.
According to SmartInsight, businesses streamline and optimize their product by using digital media platforms. They seek to reap the rapid rewards from consumers who view, purchase, and advertise their product. For instance, consider those viral Youtube videos “how to make six figures in 3 months” or “how to lose 30 pounds in 3 weeks”.
The problem isn’t making six figures or losing 30 pounds. Rather, the problem is what the brief timeframe encourages. Quick results don't promise quality. It’s in the process that we develop the skills to sustain, or even replicate, what we’ve achieved.
Words of Wisdom by Char of the Week: Antoine de Saint-Exupéry once said, “I’ve learned to stop rushing things that need time to grow.” Rushing through the process only creates premature results. You’re exactly where you're supposed to be. James 1:2-6
