Chapter 12 Finding Your Calling from What’s Best Next by Matt Perman

instead of creating a detailed plan, create a more general plan and then advance your goal by keeping your eyes open to seize unplanned opportunities.

Spurgeon has said, “If you stop and do nothing until you can do everything, you will remain useless.”

Don’t take a step you are not going to enjoy simply because you think it will open up a door to something you do enjoy. It seldom works this way.

Some of my best decisions are decisions I made because they enabled me to join forces with quality people who love the Lord, whom I respect, and who make me a better person.

Put yourself in the path of surprise and unplanned opportunities, and then seize them.

read biographies and books that encourage you to do hard things and dream big dreams for God and the good of the world.

As with all planning, involve God and make him the center (Prov. 16:3).

  1. Good words! So many people follow their tunnel vision — if not actually, then wishfully — bypassing more fruitful opportunities in their pursuit of some long-ago fantasy of what might bring them happiness. Meanwhile life passes them by and often even renders their dreams obsolete in the accommodations of today’s world. We can only avoid the resulting depression of our self-worth by making the most of each moment’s opportunities to live, learn and follow the tenuous path God weaves through our lives “Carpe Diem,” and celebrate the new opportunities that creates!.
