Manage your time the way Jesus managed his with a biblical antidote to swamped to-do lists and hurried schedules.
“A highly practical road map.”—Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author and lead pastor of National Community Church
Despite the overwhelming amount of resources for time management and work-life balance, the ability to cultivate the efficiency and equilibrium needed to manage all our worthy pursuits can often feel frustratingly out of reach. The reason for our struggle is that productivity and time-management systems focus on individual habits rather than more meaningful and lasting lifestyle changes. But as it turns out, there is a better way to reach our full potential.
We don’t need just another approach to changing our habits. What we need is an operating system that takes into account the full scope of our lives. In these pages, bestselling author Jordan Raynor presents this system, using seven powerful time- management principles drawn from the example of how Jesus lived:
1. Start with the Word: Find meaningful connection with the author of time daily.
2. Let Your Yes Be Yes: Accept only the commitments you can fulfill.
3. Dissent from the Kingdom of Noise: Create room for silence, stillness, and reflection.
4. Prioritize Your Yeses: Confidently maintain your commitments.
5. Accept Your “Unipresence”: Focus on one important thing at a time.
6. Embrace Productive Rest: Live the God-designed rhythms of rest which are productive for our goals and souls.
7. Eliminate All Hurry: Embrace productive busyness while ruthlessly eliminating hurry from our lives.
With these principles, you’ll see how Jesus managed his time on earth and how he responded to human constraints much like the ones you face today. More than that, you’ll discover corresponding practices that will help you embrace the best, most Christlike version of yourself possible: purposeful, present, and wildly productive.
Productivity Game Changer ❤️🔥
This a billion percent incredible! What a game changer in redeeming your time, & for the glory of God! Even before I finished reading it had already begun making a powerfully instrumental difference in my productivity, as well as my perspective on the topic. Thank God for leading Jordan Raynor to writing this books & to Jordan for heeding the call 💜
Time has slowed down.
Everyday was frantic. I was racing from one thing to the next and before I knew it the day was over and I had yet again not completed what I had set out to do. Everyday was the same and it was exhausting. I had to make a change. Enter Redeeming Your Time. I’ve read many books on time management and honestly didn’t have high hopes for new content from this one. But I was so wrong. This book takes a different approach to time management so I decided to give the “practices” a try. As I did, I found that I began to gain the hours back in my day. It feels like time has slowed down because I’m actually getting meaningful work done on a regular basis now, and I’m feeling really good about it at the end of each day. Needless to say, I highly recommend this book!
