Now that you know the 8 shocking reasons for your confusion about life, you are most likely to ask, can you work through life with precision? Is it even possible? And what does it mean to work through life with precision?
In our guide today, you’ll learn many things you need to know about working through life with precision and much more!
We trust you have learnt about the big culprit against the life we deserve: CONFUSION. Merely looking at the subject seems like an ignorable experience.

And do you know what? You, as well as I, are not in any way free. So long as we are on this GOD-given earth, we will have to battle against it and win by GOD’S grace. Let’s delve deeper, shall we?
What does it mean to work through life with precision?
First off, what is PRECISION? According to the oxford dictionary, precision is the quality, condition or fact of being exact and accurate. Another definition says it measures how much detailed information is given.
So to work through life with precision, you would have to calculate the cost of time and other resources and then arrive at an accurate approach which you must follow in other to get it right.
This looks like an impossible thing. Right? Remind me again.
It is virtually impossible when life begins to throw all the punches and shoot all the arrows, and it is almost impossible when the wall you once leaned on for safety now has spikes on them. It is difficult when we are faced with challenges, but, carnally speaking, it is impossible to work through life with precision.
However, scripturally we know that it is possible to work through life with precision. So to the intricate question,
Can you work through life with precision?
The short answer is YES; you can work through life with precision. It is possible to work through life keeping your eyes on the prize—the golden crown. However, this is after you have paid the great price of faith.
Although it is possible to work through life with precision, every decision that would guarantee it happens depends on many factors you must recognize.
Factors that impact one’s ability to work through life with precision
- Family background
- Individual dealings
Did you know that with all these factors that’s capable of limiting one’s choices, you can still work through life with precision? There is proof that you can still work through life with precision.
Let’s peep into the life of JESUS and see how this relates to us. After all, the Bible commands us to look up to HIM, who is the author and perfecter of our faith, so says Hebrews 12:2.
The Bible even promises us that whoever believes in JESUS, the works that HE did, they shall also do, and greater works than these shall they do, so says John 14:12.
So, it is possible to work through life with precision. Throughout JESUS’ stay here on earth, HE worked circumspectly even amidst the struggles, the constant interruption from people, and the temptation. The Bible says that for the joy that was set before HIM endured the cross, despising the shame.
Studying the life of Joseph in the Bible, he faced trials and a lot of temptation, yet he ascended heights unimaginable. Looking at the life of Apostle Paul and other Apostles, many of them cared less about what the WORLD thought or said; why? Well, they, through the Holy Spirit, figured there was a better place other than here.
Apostle Paul, at the end of his journey, said in 2 Timothy 4:7-10, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith…” (You can read the rest to get the hang of it)
No matter how much we try to twist it, the truth of the matter is you can work through life with precision, knowing where you are headed.
But, if we can work through life with precision, why are most people unable to do this?
Let’s learn that!
Why are most people not working through life with precision?
For many people, their answer to Can you work through life with precision is, NO, it is not possible; you cannot even try.
But even you have seen that it is possible, and you and I and anyone else can work through life with precision. It is not because we say we can; this is not any motivational gimmick. This is because GOD says so and has proved it through HIS son JESUS, and the other just men made perfect.
Do you want to know why it is hard for people to work through life with precision? Of course, the well-known culprit is CONFUSION.
But, like we said earlier, there are factors that impact our ability to work through life with precision. These are essential factors that make up growth and can make or mar our future.
Factors that impact one’s ability to work through life with precision
As you may know, family is the first encounter a child has immediately after birth, and since the child’s first development starts with the family, it matters what goes in, through and out of the child’s life.
Now imagine if the child grows with the right dose of the message and from parents that are genuinely in love with GOD.
This is where the belief system begins to take its root. So, depending on what the child is exposed to, it can either create a ladder for godly and victorious life or build strongholds for worldly and defeated life.
After the family background is religion, you see, where you get your spiritual food matters. And like Apostle Joshua Selman said, errors in doctrine already make room for instantaneous defeat.
It doesn’t matter how good the place of worship or the person is, and like he said, “A good person can teach the doctrine of the devil. You do not have to be bad or fake; you just have to be ignorant.”
Now for everybody that goes through the proper doctrine, the life of precision is almost guaranteed. However, if it is the opposite, then that’s another error on the way to crash land.
At this stage, your growth, or even a child’s, is no longer limited to family and religion. Now the child is ready to be intellectually inclined, but at this point, the child meets with several people with diverse cultures and even belief systems.
This stage can affect the child’s life in unimaginable ways because, innately, the child would be more attracted to their peers. This is where we experience a part of the strongest influence.
If you do not pay attention to your kid at this point, the comfort they once got from home and a place of worship becomes a secondary option because something else has occupied the space.
Whether we like it or not, money is important and plays an important role in shaping people’s behavior. After all, if a family cannot afford to send their children to school or the best school, things will take a bad turn for the children.
When this happens, the child’s life is affected, which can affect society. It takes an individual to bring destruction to a home, a home to bring destruction to a region, a region to bring destruction to a city and a city to bring havoc to society.
Imagine a society without the basic needs to keep them healthy and sane.
Everything on the list doesn’t matter if wicked and ungodly men rule a region. One wrong decision from these rulers can make or mar the lives of thousands and millions.
So, even if all are put in place, and the region is not in safe hands, it automatically lifts peace from the people, introducing chaos, insecurity, lack and many vices, which significantly impacts growth. Nigeria is not far from this truth, right?
The media have done a great deal, impacting people’s decisions and belief systems. You do not have to travel fast to have a role model. The king of them all is social media.
The media impacts our children; it encourages immorality to a great extent. It lowers their self-esteem, and it saps their energy. I once passed a post that referred to social media as a vampire. However, it doesn’t feed on blood; it feeds on our attention to the extent we no longer trust our instincts for the simplest decisions.
The media encourages cultural imperialism, increasing lust for quick money, sex and recognition.
(Maybe we should expand this study. What do you think?)
Come what may, many people still believe and say that the best advice you can ever get is the one you give to yourself. If you still have a godly conscience, then at a point, you would realize there’s ample space, no material things, no money, and no person can fill in your heart.
During my school days, our lecturer Dr Nnamdi Okenwa said severally that making decisions based on people’s opinions is not wise. He said there’s something called “cooling time”, when you should sift opinions and decide for yourself.
So, you can work through life with precision if you make decisions too. It is not one decision; it is not two or three. You will carefully make countless decisions minding all the fragments that make up the puzzle.
These factors affect our ability to work through life with precision.
What can I do to work through life with precision?
Undoubtedly, working through life with precision is hard; it is daunting and looks impossible. However, you can, and I can work through life with precision.
1.Believe in GOD
Many people would advise you first to believe in yourself, but you do not and cannot believe in yourself if you do not know yourself. And how do you know yourself? By knowing your SOURCE—GOD.
2.Believe in what GOD has said about YOU
Believe that every distraction cannot toss you, but that all becomes a stepping stone for you.
You can only work through life with precision if you know your stance and if you decide not to do life alone. But, if not you would end in shredded struggles. So dear, what is it going to be?

You cannot work through life with precision if you walk out of GOD’S will. But you can if you are working through life with GOD as your head and your only way maker.
How can you work through life with precision?
Every pressure will wage war against your rising, but if people can do it, you can. JESUS said you CAN. He said, “Truly, truly, I tell you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I am doing. He will do even greater things than these because I am going to the father.”
Do you even remember half of what JESUS did, including casting out legions of demons from a man, feeding five thousand people with an amount of food that you and I know cannot feed even 15 people? Now, HE is saying you and I will do even greater things. This is breathtaking!
But in the end, your ability to work through life with precision is highly dependent on you.
In this guide, we walked you through on the topic, “Can you work through life with precision?” indeed; you can work through life with precision if you believe in GOD and believe in what HE said about YOU. YOU ARE IMPORTANT.
