“Time is of the essence" came to mind as we talked about business planning casually this afternoon. The suggestion was that I become very good at discerning how my time is spent – what I do, who I do it with and always following a set schedule. I was curious to see where that phrase came from, so I looked it up on Google. To me, the phrase seems to be very vague. It is actually a contractual or legal term which is very specific to time frames.
My perspective drastically changed today in a couple of areas. First through the discussion about how my time is spent and how I think about my time is so important. My determination is that my time frame for reaching my goals is a priority and the more specific I am, the better it will be. And, as I identify my goals the people to spend my time with will be figured out also.
Timing is everything, right? We had a team gathering tonight and went over goals. One of the action items is to label each goal as 1, 3, 5 and 10 year goals; then put specific dates to the top 5 goals. As a moderator, I was able to take a lot in. So, second, I observed that most people, including myself, also require accountability of some kind. Today was another one of those days where seeing what I am supposed to see today, took most of the day. As I prayed this morning, I sought to be wise with my time, to be productive as I went through my day, and to align with the right people.
I am grateful for perfect timing, awesome people, and God’s hand in EVERYTHING!
