The apostles were clear in what they were looking for in a new apostle.
It can be debated if they were supposed to appoint a new apostle or not. I don’t think it is that big of an issue.
But what they did get right is that they had a clear definition for who they were looking for.
When you are looking to fill a hole, do you know what you really want in that role?
Or does your description sound like everyone else’s description?
That is step number 1 in finding a good fit. You have to know what type of person fits.
Your description must end up excluding people. The apostles’ description ended up excluding all but two. Then it was a coin toss.
All go into excluding people down to just a few. And then you might just find that the last few are really a coin toss.
How can you get a clear description of who you are looking for in your next role to be filled?
