a productive and effective week…

the week begins and there is sooooo much to do, where do you start? what will I tackle first? emails, phone calls, planning sessions, creative meetings, vision casting and evaluating, face book (major source of time killer), twit or tweet, follow up, equipment orders, edit media trax, study for 3 messages, spring break out for missions kids, halfway house mentoring…and the list goes on and on. Here’s my plan…a look into my world the first day of the week. (I know it’s tuesday-I have off on monday and I still sent emails, posted tweets and made a few calls) Today – I cleaned off my desk for a fresh start of the week, broke out a card and listed few things I HAVE to get to today, cleaned out my emails and opened my format for messages, set myself up to flow…got a play list going in my office. For me atmosphere is conducive to my effectiveness…lights are not florescent. I like lower ambient lighting and a clean workspace for tackling the day. This all happens before staff prayer and staff meeting. It’s 9 am now and I am ready to go to prayer and staff meeting (oops gotta fill out my staff report). my week is full, sometimes over full, but I find that I must spend time doing the right things…

Philippines 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

here is a quote from a pastor i read recently on FB…

Until you KNOW what to do; do what you KNOW to do; and by doing what you KNOW to do; God will lead you to WHAT you are supposed to do!
