Productive: Basics of Productivity (Part 1)


The First Steps of Productivity

Proverbs 12:1

Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but whoever hates correction is stupid.

There’s no such thing as Time Management; it’s really:

a. Priority Management – There’s never enough time for everything, but there’s always enough time for the most important things in your life.

Ephesians 2:10

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.

What are your priorities?

Intimacy with Christ: Build my life on grace.

Marriage: She is the most loved woman in the world.

Parenting: Parent the way God parents me.

Community: Love them with the love of Christ.

b. Stress Management – when you manage your priorities, you more effectively manage your stress.

Philippians 4:6-8

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.

I know where my priorities come from.

I have my priorities written down.

I am clear about who is responsible for what.

I am clear on what I can and can’t control.

I am clear that my timing is not always God’s timing.

c. Self Management – You don’t manage the time; you manage yourself.

Romans 12:1-2

Therefore, I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

Proverbs 12:1

Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but whoever hates correction is stupid.
