UNDERSTANDING WHAT'S HAPPENING

1) Not All Efforts Are Valued Equally
2) Not All Outcomes Are Valued Equally
3) Not All Methods Are Valued Equally
4) Not All Abilities Are Valued Equally

Understanding This Common Core Can Help Us Understand What's Happening, And Understand How To Be More Effective In Our Efforts. Share A Common Core.

WHAT'S THIS COMMON CORE MADE FROM?

1) Not All Efforts Are Valued Equally

80-20 Rule
The work of Vilfredo Pareto (1848 – 1923). Commonly called the "80-20 Rule," Pareto's Principle states that 20 percent of your actions generate 80 percent of your results (high value) and 80 percent of your actions generate the other 20 percent of your results (low value?) Pareto's Principle illustrates an important point: All time, or effort, is not valued equally. An hour or two of your best time may produce far greater returns than other hours of low-value, or ineffective actions. developing working skillsets for each tenet prepares us to progress and, as we become more skillful, our results become far more joyful.

2) Not All Outcomes Are Valued Equally

The 11th And 13th Articles Of Faith
“We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.”

"We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul?—We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things." If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.

Doctrine And Covenants Section 46
Verse 11 For all have not every agift given unto them; for there are many gifts, and to every man is given a gift by the Spirit of God.
Verse 12 To some is given one, and to some is given another, that all may be profited thereby.

"We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul?—We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things." If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.

3) Not All Methods Are Valued Equally

Leading in the Lord’s Way
“I teach them correct principles, and they govern themselves.”

Teaching in the Savior’s Way
The goal of every gospel teacher ?— every parent, every formally called teacher, every home teacher and visiting teacher, and every follower of Christ ?— is to teach the pure doctrine of the gospel, by the Spirit, in order to help God’s children build their faith in the Savior and become more like Him.

Asking in the Lord’s Way
James 1:5 King James Version
"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him."

James 1:5 New International Version
"If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you."

4) Not All Abilities Are Valued Equally

Learning How And When We Learn
Finding the time and desire to focus on the things that matter to us, and work on learning how to choose what we want, and how to get what we want. Finding the time and desire to develop a clear understanding of what we want to accomplish, how we are going to do it, and how we're going to feel about it. By developing the capacity to understand these three things, we elevate our thinking and produce a connected perspective to serve as a solid foundation for how to choose what we want, and get what we want.

Learning How And When We Focus
The goal of every gospel teacher ?— every parent, every formally called teacher, every home teacher and visiting teacher, and every follower of Christ ?— is to teach the pure doctrine of the gospel, by the Spirit, in order to help God’s children build their faith in the Savior and become more like Him.

Learning How And When To Level Up
How: Ponder, Pray, Ponder. When: Before, Prepart, Start, Finish, After.
Times each week where we focus on the things that matter to us, and learn how to get what we want, by developing a clear understanding of what we want to accomplish, how we are going to do it, and how we're going to feel about it.

Understanding the importantance of learning how these three core tenets of the Gospel work together, and the value of developing working skillsets for each tenet prepares us to progress and, as we become more skillful, our results become far more joyful.

As we become far more joyful, we can find greater personal encouragement and also be capable of encouraging and supporting others, even when things are very challenging.

There's a high likelihood that when we don't see how these three core tenets combine to work together, we remain less effective than we could otherwise become. Said more simply we miss opportunities to do significantly better. Let's see how:

When we don't cultivate a Deep and Lasting understanding of what the Savior wants us to do, we are more likely to miss plain and precious truths about how effective we can be in our homes, and in our Wards, and in our Stakes.

To the extent that we don't understand how inseparably connected each of these tenets are to the power of being able to love one another, and minister, and teach in the Savior's way; to a similar extent, we fail to fully prepare for the times when we need the constant influence of the Holy Ghost.

This is President Nelson's quote about this time which we need to be preparing for:

”In coming days, it will not be possible to survive spiritually without the guiding, directing, comforting, and constant influence of the Holy Ghost”

The good news is that when we gain new skills related to a deeper understanding of how guidance, direction, comfort, and influence can work in our lives and in the lives of the youth we have responsibilities to care for then, as we use our new skills, our ability to be far more successful increases.

Our happiness also increases, because we develop a more perfect brightness of hope that we are truly prepared to succeed in our stewardships. Through this preparation we progress and our results become far more joyful, even when things are very challenging.

The alternative is that when we struggle significantly over time, we are far more likely to return to the way we have done things in past, and when we return to doing things the way we have done things, in that moment we cease to strive to do the new higher and Holier and more Lasting things.

So this is why Deep and Lasting are so inseparably connected to Higher and Holier, because if, when we do hard or new things, and we do not deeply understand what we are doing, and why we are doing these hard or new things, we will at some point return to what we have always done, and we will have neither a deep nor lasting conversion, nor achieve Higher and Holier results.

LET'S DISCUSS SPECIFIC EXAMPLES OF WHERE THIS OCCURS IN OUR LIVES

Here Are Some Recient Conference Talks Referencing These Areas

A hallmark of the Lord’s true and living Church will always be an organized, directed effort to minister to individual children of God and their families.

Because it is His Church, we as His servants will minister to the one, just as He did. We will minister in His name, with His power and authority, and with His loving-kindness.
(And Quality Teaching Is Required To Develop These Abilities)

Because our purpose is to balance Church and the home experiences in a way that will greatly increase faith and spirituality and deepen conversion.

Because in coming days, it will not be possible to survive spiritually without the guiding, directing, comforting, and constant influence of the Holy Ghost.

Because we may all come to understand our part in this great ministering work so that we will become more like Him.

For instance, there is no need to constantly tell our spouse or children how they can improve. It is in creating an environment of love that they will be empowered to make the necessary changes in their lives and become better people.

Because we can teach in the Savior’s Way.

Because self assessment combined with a clear understanding of how the Lord wants us to gain further light and knowledge, can be a great source of comfort and strength by sustaining our faith, increasing our understanding, and by building a more perfect brightness of hope to protect us during times of struggle, strife, or weakness.

Because it makes no sense to ask Teachers, Organizational Presidencies, and Ward Councils, To off load Prior Bishopric Responsibilities, and then ask the very Bishopric Members who we are trying to free up to do the orientation and training. Especially when the training requires showing all these good people how to do things which they have, in many cases, never done before. Rather, training by specialists at the ward or stake level would seem to be a very effective way to orient and train as needed.
