Manic Mondays: The big things

One of the helpful questions that I like to ask on Monday is: What are the big things that need to get done this week? I then schedule the time needed for them. Often, focusing on what is most important helps get even the “least important” things accomplished. Why?

We need margins in our schedule. God gives us all 24 hours a day and 2 days a week to accomplish His will. Rick Warren aptly stated: If you constantly have more work then you can get done, you’re probably not doing God’s will.

God’s will includes times of rest, reflection and enjoying life: “Eat, drink and enjoy the fruit of your labor for this too is a gift from God.” ~The Preacher of Ecclesiastes

So….Focus on the BIG, and have margin in your schedule

(especially on Monday)
