The Right Tool For The Job

The Right Tool For The Job

Ever tried to use a wrench to drive a nail into a piece of wood? It might work, but it won’t be as effective as using a hammer. Why? Because a wrench wasn’t designed for that purpose. It has another skill-set. Use the wrench to fix a leaky faucet, however, and you’ll have much better results. 

People often find themselves in similar situations. Their skills, talents, abilities, and gifts may work well in one situation, but not so great in another.

 At the beginning of any project, whether it’s a solo performance or a team effort, it’s always important to carefully evaluate the talent and the task.  Without an adequate understanding of the task to be completed AND an appreciation of the talents, abilities, and skills available, you cannot effectively match the two; and a mismatch will not only make the project longer and harder than it has to be, but will often lead to failure.

Want to complete a project successfully? Make sure you’re using the right tool for the job.
