Co-Q for Thursday – Winston & Brady Bunch

COT:
Q-Source 1.12 Meeting (Part 1)
A man’s Purpose (which F3 defines as an advantage sought) is best Accelerated with Faith and in the company of others. There are usually logistical obstacles to meeting together – getting up, getting ready, getting there on time, etc. Meetings also can challenge our happiness in the moment – they often put us in contact with people we might otherwise choose not to be with. Also, what people share during a meeting may not be the messages we want to hear.

In other words, there are lots of reasons not to meet. But leaders persist with meetings because they know that Meetings have a Purpose of their own and that purpose has little to do with their own Happiness and everything to do with the Outcomes for which he is responsible as a Leader.

All men have their ups and downs in their lives. During good times, we often feel like we’re on top of a mountain and want to share our joy. While during bad times and in our deepest valleys, we want nothing more than to be left alone and lick our wounds. Ironically, it’s in those valleys (when Meeting is the last thing we want to do) that those are the instances in which we most need to be meeting with others, so that we can share in the strengths of our Brothers and support one another.

When one man finds himself in a valley experiencing a difficult time and takes the opportunity to support a brother, he usually forgets his own problems momentarily – and in the momentary forgetting of himself, POOF, finds that he has returned to his own mountaintop and poised to lead from a place of authenticity.

This is the power of purpose – supported by our Faith – that is the secret sauce to why F3 is an Effective Organization. The Joy of forgetting oneself in service of others surpasses all understanding. It is the foundation of Hope.
