Do what you say you will do.
Before AT&T, it was SBC. Before SBC, it was Ameritech. Before Ameritech, it was Indiana Bell. Before Indiana Bell, it was...AT&T. After 24 years, I ended up leaving the same company that I joined after leaving college.
DWYSYWD seems easy enough, but it was the topic of a corporate campaign during the Ameritech years in the 80's. It was meant to help the employees capture the vision "To the public, you are the phone company". I connected with the acronym. DWYSYWD is seared at my core.
First time we visited GCC was January, 1999. It was the first message of the year, a tithing message. I had never heard anything like it; this pastor actually explained a tithe as 10% just like the Bible says to do. Doing what we're called to do was a connection with me. I trusted Mark Beeson.
DWYSYWD gives credibility to who you are and what you represent. I sometimes promise too much and make myself crazy trying to keep those commitments. I'm learning to not overcommit myself...as much!I'm not talking about crazy perfectionism. I'm talking about character and integrity. It matters.
