Systemizing a Prophet
“Moses,” Jethro continued to his over-burdened son-in-law, “you are the BIG picture guy; the one who has the vision for People, Inc. Delegate certain responsibilities to your managers, who should bring only the MOST PRESSING matters to you.
“In order to complete your mission, you can’t get bogged down in all the day-to-day operations,” said the wise old Sheik. “Leave that to others! If you do these things, then you will be able to endure and complete your mission, AND your people will also go about their business in peace.”
Even the great Prophet Moses PROFITED by good counsel on how to bring order to his business. The “Operations Manual” tells us he took his father-in-law’s advice, AND that he lived to be 120 years old.
