How do you approach the use of your time? Thoughtfully. Casually. Cautiously. Carelessly. Carefully.
When was the last time you challenged your use of time? Whether you have a Type A (responsible) personality or Type B (relaxed) personality, it’s a healthy thing to explore “the other side.”
Do you know which way you lean? If you’re not sure, enjoy this 4-minute video.
More than a set “type,” people land on a continuum . . . with a natural bent toward one way or the other.
Knowing our bent alerts us to the “danger zone.” To recognize your “danger zone,” answer this question.
Are the people around me more often annoyed that I work too much or play too much?
God is most glorified when we do both with full abandon. Because of this truth, don’t be afraid to challenge your natural bent.
“Dost thou love life?” Benjamin Franklin once said. “Then do no squander time (time for work and time for rest), for that’s the stuff life is made of.”
There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under heaven.
