What do history's most notorious despots have in common with many of the flag-waving, patriotic politicians of our day? Both groups rise to power through the exploitation of fear, which has become a societal plague. There have been widespread casualties. We need an antidote. Feardom offers its readers a much-needed immunization.
For disappearing acts, it’s hard to beat what happens to the eight hours supposedly left after eight of sleep and eight of work. (Doug Larson, via Quoty)
What would your life be like if you didn’t have to sleep?
I enjoy productivity and efficiency. I dislike sloth and lethargy. Sometimes I wonder how much more I could accomplish if I didn’t have to sleep for 7.5 (ish) hours each day. There is so much to do in life, and so little time to do it!
I have several friends who squander their time playing video games, “hanging out”, or flipping channels on the boob tube. While I value the importance of entertainment and recreation, it must, like anything else, be practiced in moderation.
I find that the more I get involved, the more I serve, and the more I become informed and aware, the more valuable my time becomes, and the more I see importance of prioritizing to assure that that which is good isn’t taking the place of that which is better.
While I don’t follow any strict, regimented plan on time management and prioritization, I do feel it important to keep tabs on what one’s goals and priorities are, and then plan accordingly. Sometimes I just wish there were more time.
How do you manage your time effectively?
