Review this week's message.

Key Thought:

Do the most important thing first each day and you’ll never have an unproductive day!

Key Quote

“We have to be willing to pay a private price to receive a public result.” – Pastor Bil Cornelius

“Maturity is learning how to start when you feel like procrastinating and learning how to listen when you feel like talking.” – James Clear

Start talking. Find a conversation starter for your group.
  • Are you a morning or night person?
  • What is your biggest pet peeve?
  • Did anyone join Pastor Bil in the Daniel Fast? How is it going?

Start thinking. Ask a thoughtful question.
  • Pastor Bil taught us with new habits to start small and to start now. How does this change your approach to forming a new habit?
  • How do you make a habit easy and obvious?
  • How does prayer impact the trajectory of your goals and habits?

Start sharing. Choose questions that create openness.
  • “40% of what you do is not a result of a decision, but of habits.” What does this reveal to you about your habits?
  • Where is your river running dry? What are you doing to improve it?
  • What keystone habits are you going to put into place?

Start praying. Be bold, and pray with power.

Dear Jesus, show me the habits I need to form in my life as well as those I need to break. Help me to follow Daniel’s example of only being guilty of following You! In Your Name I pray, Amen.

Start doing. Commit to a step and live it out this week.
  • Identify your keystone habits and invite an accountability partner to help you stick with them. 
  • Find a leader successful in what you want to do and learn what they do consistently that helps them win.
  • Create a new system to lead you to start building new healthy habits.
