We’re reading through the book, Ordering Your Private World, by Gordan MacDonald. This past week we read chapters 6-7.
Did anyone else feel like this book was reading your mail in these two chapters? I think Gordan MacDonald must have been speaking directly to me about time, because I am definitely one of the disorganized when it comes to time. When my time isn’t organized, my priorities are all messed up and I usually devote time to things that aren’t what is really important.
It’s amazing how we will create budgets for our money, but not budgets for our time. Our time is just as important, if not more. If our time is not organized, we waste it and thus our lives are out of order.
Rather than go on and on this week, I’m turning it over to all of you. What are some things that you do to manage your time? Do you create a calendar and actually schedule things like cleaning time, or cooking time? Do you schedule your trips to the grocery store, or is it just a spur of the moment thing? Do you work in an office and find that you continually feel overwhelmed with everything, and that there is never enough time? I’m ready to hear your thoughts.
