Sometimes we can forget the most important things. 

We know we are supposed to be patient. But we forget. 

We know we are supposed to be kind. But we forget. 

We know we are supposed to be loving. But we forget. 

It’s not that we make a conscious decision to reject the better way, but we neglect to remember. 

When writing the Proverbs, the king warns of that dangerous phenomenon. “Hear instruction and be wise, and do not neglect it.” (Proverbs 8:33)

We know we are supposed to listen to wisdom. But we forget.

A leader will put reminders in his life to make sure he remembers the most important things. Tools to remember may be notes, calendar entries, and trustworthy advisors.  Don’t fall into the trap of trusting yourself. 

What are the things and people in your life to remind you of your mission-critical priorities?
