Remember when you were a child and your older sibling said, “If you don’t quit crossing your eyes they’re going to get stuck that way.” or, “If you don’t eat your vegetables you’ll never grow up.”
Sometimes well meaning people can give incorrect advice and along with it can waste a lot of our time. That’s why it pays to consider the credentials of those who offer us advice on time management or any other aspect of success. There are a lot of catchy titles, clever phrases, and articulately worded success resources on the airwaves and bookshelves today. Yet many of these “experts” have only experienced success in one dimension of their lives- namely financial success. As a parent, spouse, or spiritually they may be a total failure.
Successful time management is multidimensional with a primary focus on getting God’s best for your life. The Bible commands us to “Learn not the way of the heathen.” That’s sound wisdom for any Christian who wants to redeem the time.
