Smarts can only get you so far. I’m realizing that this week.
In order to do my job well, I have to be quick, confident and SMART. People of any faith could do my job well.
But now, my boss just announced that he is leaving and there is a huge shift in our department. I will have a new boss and a new spot on the team. All of my hard work will be evaluated, and I will have to “prove my worth” to my new boss and others.
I’m not the only one in this situation however. There are several others in my exact position and they are creating ways for themselves to GET NOTICED and GET AHEAD. Some of it’s cut throat, and some of it is WISE.
I need to be WISE. I need to pray about this. Smarts will not get me through this. I don’t want to compromise my integrity to get ahead during uncertain times. I want to use Godly principles and truth. Sometimes I just want to be sneaky and cut around everyone to get to the top. I can’t do that – I won’t do that.
