we have a street sweeper machine that patrols the streets of williamsport about once a week, and i always wonder why. every time the sweeper goes by, the road looks dirtier than it did before. it seems like all it does is gather all the junk and put it in a straight line in the road which then sits there, causing cars to spin out in intersections all week long. it seems like a good idea to have a street sweeper, but in practice, it’s really not accomplishing anything.
it made me wonder today what those things are in my leadership and in the ministries i lead – what are those things that seem like a good idea, that take resources to do, and feel like work, but in the end aren’t really accomplishing anything.
