We know people or we are people who are characterized as "task oriented". The completion of the task matters most and they/we tend to put our head down and push forward until the task is complete. Accomplishing tasks is essential for us to move forward and achieve our goals but often times this comes at the expense of relationships and prevents us from helping others in a time of need. Focus and drive are not a bad thing, unless those inhibit our ability to have our head UP and on a swivel, looking to see who we can help along the way.
Lord, help me to be more observant of the people I need to help as I move toward the completion of my "list".
