Today’s Advent Reflection Question is How can I best order my day today to get done what I need to do?
Time management and me… not usually a good combo.
This question is geared at today but generally Saturdays are a day based on whatever the family has going on and in the Christmas season, that can be a lot of different things! Today is was craft fair shopping and lunch with Nana!
Generally, to best order my day I have to decide what the “must-do’s” are or the “non-negotiables”. Besides the obvious things I do automatically for the family (breakfast, lunches, etc.) these are:
- Time with God (Bible reading, prayer, devotions, book study, etc.)
I find if I don’t get time with God, exercise, and housework done within the first few hours of waking up, chances are they won’t happen and my day feels out of whack. So I think setting the intention of getting that accomplished early in the day is the best way to get done what I need to do.
During other seasons of the year, such as when my class is going on, I have to make grading papers and lesson planning a non-negotiable and for that I best order that into the day by simply setting the time aside and making a plan as to when and where it will happen.
Pretty basic reflection and good for me! I needed this reminder.
