Loved Seth Godin’s post on the road to mediocrity:

Along the way, we settle.

We settle for something not quite right, or an outfit that isn’t our best look, or a job that doesn’t quite maximize our talents. We settle for relationships that don’t give us joy, or a website that’s, “good enough.”

The only way to get mediocre is one step at a time.

You don’t have to settle. It’s a choice you get to make every day.

It’s really easy in ministry to settle for second best, we struggle with resources, volunteers, time and so on, and so quickly we end up settling for second best, and yet as Seth points out, it’s a choice we get to make.

What are you settling for?

Married to the amazing Sarah and raising Jakey, Daniel, Amelia, Josh & Jonah in our blended family. Passionate for Jesus, social work & sport.
