Effective Time Management Apr 25 2012

"Be careful, then, how you live - not as unwise men, but as wise, making the most of your time." - Ephesians 5:15-16a

Do you ever struggle with making the most of your time? Feeling like there's just not enough time in each day? Well, we have to remember we all have the same amount of time: one hundred sixty-eight hours a week, twenty-four hours a day. The key is making the most of our time. This is a spiritual, as well as practical, issue.

Scripture says, "Be careful, then, how you live, not as unwise men, but as wise, making the most of your time." So how do you do that? List the top three to five priorities of your life. This list will help you prioritize how you spend your time.

Concentrate on what's most important, and major on the majors. As you approach each day, write down the most important thing you need to do, commit to do it, then go to the second most important thing and do it.

Effective time management is an important discipline to have, in order to live the successful life. So get with it before your time runs out.

Yes, report it Nevermind

This can be a subtle trap too though. I have found that trying to get too much done can really spoil my day. Sometimes less is more.
