The purpose of a hotwash, lessons learned exercise, or continual process improvement (CPI), is a better tomorrow; a better next time around, so as to not be limited by whatever went wrong or better yet, even what went right! Right?! Even high schoolers have been here! How did your day yesterday go? How about last week and month and quarter?
What about an additive? Is there something we can add like a stabilizer or injector cleaner like we can add to gasoline; or a different injector like a turbo or a supercharger? Volvo added the latter to their workhorse engine to compensate for the two-second delay of their turbocharger kicking in at lower RPMs. CPI! but back to our own lives, what if we add Jesus Himself?!
“Jesus said to me, “My grace (undeserved gifts) is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may reside in me.” What a revelation, a revealing of truth. Power by itself becomes consuming, and no different are it’s sidekicks pleasure and pride. The world would have us diminish or ignore our weaknesses, but Jesus uses them to keep us in a vertical alignment with Him, supercharging the talents and skills He has gifted and built in us. Grace undeserved; and yet, this life of faith is the same victory. CPI.
Father, thank You for life, both abundant and eternal, believing and trusting you. And that “You have not given us a spirit of fearfulness, but one of power, love, and sound judgment.”
No different from learning to live and walk with one another (and oh yes! it’s learned), so we learn to live and walk with Jesus, even as He walked in goodness and righteousness, holiness and justice. CPI. So, walk and learn.
