Time Management Tip: Find an accountability partner
We were not created to work alone. God made us in His image – an image that includes the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He created man and woman during creation so they could help one another. So it’s no wonder that we end up burnt out, frustrated, and stuck when we try to do it all on our own. Whether you’re going after that dream job you’ve always wanted, writing a book, starting a business, caring for little ones, finishing college, or just trying to find time for the things you love to do, we need other people. More specifically, we need trusted people who get us, who know our hearts, and who aren’t afraid to cheer for us AND edit us when we find ourselves getting a little bit ahead of where God wants us. Call that person a mentor, and accountability partner, a life coach, a friend – whatever the name is, we all need one. We need those people who understand our passions and dreams and can help us follow God’s path to get to the next step without sacrificing our souls in the process. Take some time today to pray about who that person might be in your life – and also how you can be that person for someone else. If you have a person like that already, schedule time to meet with them and share where you’re stuck, what you need help with, and what some of your daily/weekly/monthly goals are.

labor is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:58
