As I was reading my daily devotionals this morning on my Bible app on my Kindle Fire, I came across these awesome time management tips from the one and only, Rick Warren. They were so powerful, inspirational, and helpful, that I had to share them with you! You can read them below.
Tip #1: Know Who You Are (John 8:12) – Eighteen times Jesus publicly defined himself. There was no doubt in his mind as to who he was. Trying to be someone you’re not, causes stress!
Tip #2: Know Who You Want To Please (John 5:30) – Jesus never let the fear of rejection manipulate him. No one can pressure you without your permission. You can’t please everyone. Even God can’t!
Tip #3: Set Clear Goals (John 8:14) – Jesus said, “I know where I came from, and where I am going.” Preparation prevents pressure but procrastination produces it. You work by either priorities or pressures.
Tip #4: Focus On One Thing At A Time (Luke 4:42-44) – Jesus knew how to handle interruptions without being distracted from his primary goal.
Tip #5: Don’t Try To Do Everything Yourself (Mark 3:14) – Jesus enlisted twelve disciples. We get tense when we feel it all depends on us.
Tip #6: Make A Habit Of Prayer (Mark 1:35) – No matter how busy Jesus got, he found time to get alone and pray. A daily quiet time is a great stress decompression chamber.
Tip #7: Take Time To Enjoy Life (Mark 6:30-31) – Balance is the key to stress management. Work must be balanced with fun and worship.
Do any of these tips resonate with you? They sure hit home with me!
