First, you need to determine what God wants you to do with your life. What is His purpose for you? You begin by developing your personal mission statement. You will find a study on my Resources page to walk you through it. If you haven’t done this yet, I strongly encourage you to do so before going any further.
Once you know your personal mission statement and God’s purpose for you, then your priorities fall in line with that purpose. The things you say yes to should be things that fit into God’s purpose for you and what God has shaped you to do.
I encourage you to go through the 5-day study on Time Management on my Resources page under Personal Development. You can also download some other helpful tools from that page on time management.
One of the tasks you will be asked to do is to keep a log of how you spend your time for a week. This will show you where your time goes, where you have lost time, or wasted it. It will also show you what you have made as priority. Should you be spending that much time in an area?
What are your priorities in life? Are those things first in your schedule, or are they getting pushed aside by urgent things that are not priority?
If you don’t set priorities, you won’t manage your time wisely.
What time management tips do you have to share with us? I’d love to hear from you.
