CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

We all live very busy lives and in the 21st century there is probably more demanded of human beings then what we are actually built for. Family, work, marriage, children, parents, travel, school all take a significant amount of time, planning and energy.

While we have a tremendous amount to do, to accomplish, and to achieve we unfortunately have limited time and resources in which do it.

However, on a practical level there are some “tools” we can use to help us be more efficient, organized and to prioritize our day to day tasks.

The following is a brief excerpt from “the personal MBA” by Josh Kaufman. It deals with categorizing tasks in a way to help with prioritization.

I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do. And by the grace of God, I will. -Edward Everett Hale. (19th century Unitarian minister.)

There are really only four ways to do something:

Completion
Deletion
Delegation
Deferment

Completion: doing the task. Completion is best for the important tasks that only you can do particularly well. Everything else can be handled in another matter.

Deletion: eliminating the task. It is effective for anything that is unimportant or unnecessary. If something on your task list is unimportant, don’t feel bad about eliminating it. If it’s not worth doing, it’s not worth doing well or quickly, don’t hesitate to get rid of it.

Delegation: assigning the task to someone else is effective for anything another person can do 80 percent as well as you can.

Deferment: putting the task off until later. Effective for tasks that aren’t critical or important. Don’t feel bad about putting some things off. The best way to bog yourself down is to try to handle too many things at the same time. Saving noncritical tasks for later is a good way to keep your attention and energy focused on what’s important.

Using all four of the above options for tasks can help to improve the amount of things one is able to get done.

Colossians 3:23

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.

Psalm 90:17

May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us— yes, establish the work of our hands.

Proverbs 13:4

A sluggard’s appetite is never filled, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied.

Prayers for Flobee going through difficult decisions. Prayers for several PAX (not present today) going through really tough times.

MOLESKIN:
PAX did great today with an FNG, now The Flash, leading the way. I hope he posts at F3 again. YHC struggled with cadence and will continue to work hard on improving this (thanks to Choker and Granola with their assistance.)
ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Possible group movie night-see Bootheel for details.
