In Part 1 and Part 2 of this series I provided significant quotes and thoughts from my books about time.
In this final segment of the series, I leave you with two more timely quotes:
- “You might say, “I don’t have enough time!” But I say, “You have all the time there is.”
Are you thinking from a misplaced paradigm? Are you thinking, “I don’t have enough time”? If so, look at that statement from another perspective and begin to realize that you have all the time there is. When you see time from that perspective, it changes everything, and you begin managing your time based on another paradigm. All of a sudden, time takes on a whole new meaning, which in turn affects how you spend your time and handle your schedule.
Time management is a misnomer. You can’t manage time. You can only manage the events of your life or your priorities. You can’t save time or enhance time; you can’t buy it, sell it, store it, loan it, multiply it, change it, manufacture it, or rent it. You can only spend time.
Realize that you have all the time you need to accomplish what God created you to accomplish. After all, He’s the creator of you and your day. He not only orchestrates the dance of the planets, the stars, and the cosmos, but He is intricately interested in your every day. He is the originator of time, and He can guide you best in the most productive use of your time. As you respond to His timetable, projects begin to get done in record time. Why? Because you are doing His projects His way, not just doing activities that produce nothing. –If I file it, can I find it?
- And finally regarding the wonderful benefit of organization~~ You will have time to spare:
“E.B. White, the author of Charlotte’s Web, once said, ‘One of the most time-consuming things is to have an enemy.’ Viewing disorder and disarray as enemies to be defeated will serve us greatly in our battle. When the battle rages and we win the war against disorganization, one of the great benefits is that we have much more time—time to do cool things with our kids. Isn’t that what the essence of family is all about? Time spent with kids and family is our most precious commodity, and we always desire more of it. Who among you have ever lamented, “Oh, if only I had a few more hours in the day!” Well, one wonderful result of organization is that this can become a reality. You can have “time to spare.” ~Organized
