Time Management Tip: Create a specific space for your work.
When I worked in the corporate world it was easy to switch on the “get to work” part of my brain, because I had a specific place to go to each morning. Whether it was the front desk at a university, an office, or a cubicle, I knew that when I sat down in that space, it was time to focus. Over the past few years as I’ve spent far more time working at home, I’ve discovered that having a set space for my work is just as important at home. Whether you have a spot in your kitchen, or your own home office, set up a a work space. Gather everything you’ll need and keep it there, ready to go when you sit down to work or write or create. Pray over the space where you do the work God has called you to – or ask God to reveal how this work lines up with His plan for you if you aren’t sure why you are where you are right now. Dedicate that space to God, to His Kingdom, and then get to work.
Inspiration: “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” – Colossians 3:23
