3 lessons I've learned the last 3 years.

1. The right team members are essential.

It is impossible to build anything of lasting value alone. We all know this, but far too often in our desire to achieve our dreams, accomplish our goals, and build something of lasting value, we very quickly start adding people to our lives, teams, and departments. However through the years, I have learned (many times the hard way) that ... 

I don't need people. I need the right people.  

I don’t need mentors, I need the right mentors.

I don’t need a partner, I need the right parter. 

Scripture teaches us in I Timothy 5:22 Do not be hasty in laying on of hands, and do not share in the sins of others. Keep yourself pure. One of the ways of interpreting this is to not add people to your team, ministry, or life too quickly or you may have a mess to clean up.  

What we are called to do is to important. We don’t need team members, we need the right ones.

2. You’re going to fail a lot and that is ok. 

No matter how much you know or how hard you work, you are going to fail.  

Dr. Sues was turned down by 24 publishers before he got his book deal. 

The makers Formula 409 tried and failed 409 times before they got the ingredients right. 

Thomas Edison failed over 14,000 times when trying to invent the light bulb. 

The secret to success is not “never failing”. The secret to success is being willing to "fail until you succeed".

3. Communication will create or solve any problem. 

Never underestimate communication! When we have clear explanations, firm expectations, and consistent two way communication; we will not only complete our project, we will build a great team.
