Time Management Tip: Work when you work best
I had coffee with a new friend from church the other day, and as we were talking about writing I asked her when she writes best. For her, it’s at night. That’s when creativity flows and she’s able to get her thoughts together and turn them into some beautiful devotionals for mamas. I create best in the morning, when the coffee is hot and my brain isn’t scattered with thoughts of my people coming home from school and what we’re about to do that evening. Maybe you work best over your lunch break, when you can tune out the world for an hour and do something creative that recharges you, or maybe you are like the amazing Kat Lee who designates a specific task for a specific day of the week ( I want to be her when I grow up).
When do you work best? As you’re looking at the time you have available and the way you want to schedule time to do the things that you love and allow you to serve God, do you need to rearrange some things to make that preferred time available?
Resource: Anchored Press Devotional Planner
I really love this planner so much, because it gives me the opportunity to track my to-do list but also encourages me with scripture and beautifully written devotionals all in one place. If you’re looking for a physical agenda to help you manage your time well, this is the one I would recommend (and maybe it’s because I have a devotional in it….but also because I just truly do love it.)
