Agile Ministry has a good overview of the process of managing your time better.
As we all know, there is always more to do than we have time and resources. Want to break the cycle? Here is my approach:
an assessment of what your ministry does. Do this by first taking an
inventory, and then rank each item by the time it requires to execute
each week, with 1 indicating the most time consuming. Be honest with
yourself and be prayerful. This may take more time than you expect, so
block out at least an hour to be sure.
- Review your list
and strike through half of your list the things that you do today that
you can live without. You must remove at least half of your items, and
if you have an uneven number, round up. Be brutal and honest.
the remaining items left, circle half of those remaining that require
your attention, or the attention of your ministry, on a consistent
basis. Again, be brutal as you will often think that everyone on your
list is important.
