"The Leprechaun"    

Goes to the Quantum Leaper   


While working at a trade association in Washington DC a challenge went forth to all the staff. We had just relocated to a new facility and the president was excited about our new d�cor. So, he put forth a challenge that your office area and desk had to be cleleprechaunan every day for 90 days. There is something to be said about a 90-day challenge.


Well, needless to say I was one of those that after the 90 days was over met the challenge. For me that was a phenomenal feat because my desk has not always been that orderly and tidy. Prior to the 90-day challenge I was competing with another man for having the messiest desk in the company. Nevertheless, I met the challenge.


At a staff meeting I was awarded my own Oscar of sorts, a "Leprechaun" statue. Why a leprechaun? The president was Irish. Regardless, it symbolized a victory.


From my earliest recollections as a young kid I remember my notebook being in total disarray. Papers would be hanging out and there was not much organization going on. Howbeit, whether it was a messy desk or my notebook I always knew exactly where things were and could go directly to it. To others it appeared as though I was disheveled and unorganized.


Appearances do reflect our character. No matter how much we want to state otherwise people size us up by our appearance. The oxymoron to this whole equation is that I am always impeccably dressed. Every outfit coordinated and outfitted with the right jewelry, shoes and yes makeup. In fact, in high school people thought I was a model and I was voted the best dressed person in my graduating class. Wow! What a contrast.


Why? My physical presentation was more important to me than my environmental presentation. I respected fashion and prided myself on not looking like everyone else and not wearing the same outfit twice for at least a month. A colleague wittingly gave me the title, "NT" for "never twice." Yet, I didn't have the same respect for cleaning as I did for dressing.


Priorities play a big part in where we place our energies and time. Whatever you respect that is where your priority will be. Now don't get me wrong, I did respect cleaning when it was necessary. For instance, if a guy came to visit me I would have my house looking good. Please don't look in the closet. That is where everything was thrown.


There was this guy I dated who was clueless. I had mastered this approach. If he called and said that he was coming over, I would always ask, "Where are you?" Not because I cared, but because I had to factor in throwing everything in the closet and getting myself prepared as well. When I hung up that phone I was in a frenzy to make sure everything was in its place. Cleaning took priority when I felt it was important for me to impress the other person. You know what, till this day, because I know that he will be reading this, he had no idea just how messy I really was.


I say all that because somewhere in the deep crevices of each of our beings we have a desire to exhibit the same passion for excellence in every area of our lives. For me, it is tidiness and organization. As my priorities for cleanliness changed, my respect for maintaining an orderly environment changed. This renewed respect required a paradigm shift in my mind, my principles and my values.


If a small leprechaun statue could forge me to exceed a 90-day challenge, I know that during this 90-day challenge each of us will be more than successful in transforming our mindset as we take quantum leaps over those habits that have kept us from being successful.


The "Leprechaun" goes to the Quantum Leaper! That means you.

I have fought the good fight. I have completed the race. I have kept the faith. The prize that shows I have God's approval is now waiting for me. The Lord, who is a fair judge, will give me that prize on that day. He will give it not only to me but also to everyone who is eagerly waiting for him to come again. 2 Tim 4:7-8 (GW)


Since we are surrounded by so many examples {of faith}, we must get rid of everything that slows us down, especially sin that distracts us. We must run the race that lies ahead of us and never give up. Heb 12:1 (GW)


I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead,I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. Phil 3:13-14 (NLT)


Whoever enters an athletic competition wins the prize only when playing by the rules. 2 Tim 2:5 (GW)


So you see, faith by itself isn't enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless. James 2:17 (NLT)


And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice-the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:1-2 (NLT)


"I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it would move. Nothing would be impossible." Matt 17:20 (NLT)




You created me to be more and that nothing could prevent me from being successful in the areas where you would have me to be. In order for me to take authority, I can no longer value those things that have been a detriment and not beneficial to me in progressing forward. I am no longer afraid to confront those issues as I leap over them. Never again will they be a stronghold in my life.
