Brian Bailey Preface to the Revised Edition

The Badge of Busy

Russ Lipton has written an eloquent post which offers a Christian perspective on time management.

Our pastor talks regularly about how we love to wear the label busy like a badge of honor. When people ask how we're doing, by far the most common answer is "Busy".

The question is, Busy doing what? What are your priorities? As Ed often points out, a quick review of your day planner and bank statement will tell you where your heart is.

   Maybe our problem is that we aren't allowing God to be the Manager (or CEO) of our time?
