“It is a liberating thought that time can be a tool to be used to good advantage. Given two leaders of equal ability, the one who uses best this tool by planning their time more effectively will far outperform the other person. They will take time for creative thinking and the problem-solving which is vital to the job. The other simply puts them off until they ‘find’ time. How often we hear, ‘I wish I knew how to manage my time better’. Rarely do we hear, ‘I wish I knew how to manage myself better’ but that’s really what it comes down to.” – Ted Engstrom
Introduction from Michael Cassidy
“I suppose when one is galloping towards the home straight of life, one tends to think a bit more about Time than if one were twenty seven, thirty seven or even fifty seven! But perhaps, rather than looking wistfully backwards, it is spiritually healthier to affirm with the Psalmist: “I trust in you, Lord; I say, ‘You are my God. My Times are in your hands’” (Psalm 31:14-15).
“I believe it is incumbent upon all of us as believers to grasp that Time, next to life itself, and perhaps the gift of grace and salvation, is the greatest thing we have and it presents us with divine opportunities round every corner to accomplish the purposes of our God in the world. So how then do we handle this matter of Time? I hope that the resources available here will be a help and a blessing for anyone asking this question.”
