The article, Time Management, is longish, but leaving off reading it will be to your great loss. Though written by a denominational, there might be two words I’d bicker over. It sparkles with biblical perspective, sharp quotations, and practicality. It works more on the principle, than by giving tips or suggestions, which is laudable. Here’s an illustration from the article:
Imagine a line of string that stretches across the room. Now take that line of string and extend it through the walls and outside the building where you are sitting. Carry that line out as far as you can see, in both directions, and allow it to disappear beyond the horizon. If you could take an airplane and fly along that line of string in either direction, it would continue to stretch out in front of you. The string would not simply wrap itself around the world, but it would reach beyond our atmosphere, extending out into space, beyond our solar system, beyond our universe. The line is never-ending.
Now, take a pen and make a scratch on this line of string – just one mark. That lone scratch is your earthly life in the scope of eternity.
Ironically, while reading this article, I saw a tweet pop up on my screen (done automatically with Echofon) which said, “Productivity tip: Do things faster.” Read the article, and see why it’s ironic.
