    Does your team know where you are going and why they are following you?

Establish clear core values that are implemented in every facet of operations and promotions.

    Pride is a particularly dangerous sin because it not only separates you from God, it causes you to attack God by attempting to dethrone Him in your life and enthroning yourself as your own god.  Are you asking God to help you cultivate humility, which will bring you both peace and success?  Recognize that you're a sinner just all other people and are not superior to anyone else.  Don't always insist on having your own way just because you own the business.  Seek out and be open to biblical instruction, reproof, rebuke, and constructive criticism.  Learn from others and accept help from them whenever you need it.

    Do you ever find yourself telling "white lies" or ask the people who work for you to do so? Tell the truth even when it's not easy, cheap, popular, or convenient.  Follow through on your commitments even if they become more costly, inconvenient, or time-consuming than you'd estimated.  Always do more than just enough to get a job done; put forth the extra effort necessary to do an excellent job.  Don't give others false impressions, such as by omitting facts that reveal reality or offering excuses to disguise reality.

    Do you genuinely care about people?  Value working with people more than doing paperwork.  Learn how to be efficient with things but effective with people.  Listen more than you speak.  Ask the right questions to engage others in good conversations.  Don't keep score with people; serve them to express your love for God rather than because you're expecting something in return.  Don't judge people or try to debate them toward YOUR agenda, instead, love them and show humility (without stuffing).  Control your attitudes and emotions to make them positive rather than negative.  Look for ways to meet others' needs.  Speak respectfully to people and well of them.  Invest in your employees' development by giving them the resources they need to be successful.  Care enough to confront them when they're off track.  Pray for them regularly.

    Do you hire people prayerfully and strategically?  Establish a culture that promotes accountability and includes Jesus in every facet of operations.  Develop your team with the highest upward potential in your business and delegate work to them, encourage them, and hold them accountable for results.

    Do you get easily offended and frustrated? Learn how to confront and not stuff. Let go of grudges against people who hurt or offend you; forgive and reconcile right away. Always be honest and up front, keeping a short leash on your emotions. Don’t be a stuffer!

    How well do you focus your time on the tasks that you can do best accomplish in the least amount of time?  Identify your priorities and base your schedule on them.  Don't let trivial tasks consume too much of your attention; focus on what's most important.  Whenever you need to add something to your "to-do" list, take something off the list to make room for the new task.  Trust God in every part of your life and tell Him that you want to use your time to fulfill His purposes for you.  He will guide you to use your time well.

    Remember that all the money you and your company have comes from God.  Give generously as God leads you.  Avoid unnecessary debt and pay existing debt off as soon as possible.  Don't concern yourself with the prosperity of dishonest people; keep doing what's right yourself and trust God to judge everyone fairly.  Pay all the taxes you owe to the government.  Don't enter into business partnerships with nonbelievers.

    Build mental balance into your life by learning new information and developing new skills.  Build emotional balance by constantly investing in your relationships.  Build physical balance by getting enough sleep and exercise regularly and eating a healthy diet.  Build spiritual balance by celebrating disciplines like prayer, Bible study, scripture meditation, and participating in church worship services. Build structure for all quadrants of life and make sure you are addressing them all with the same amount of passion (for Jesus).
