Most pastors report feeling overwhelmed and stressed out much of the time.  They often find themselves running from one meeting to the next or reacting to multiple interruptions and distractions most days rather than making progress on the work they really need to be doing.  In this episode I share several practical resources for pastors who need to get a better handle on their schedules.

 

  • Talk about pastors “finding the time” to get things done.
  • We don’t find the time.  We manage our time.
  • We’ve all been given the same 24 hours a day.  Some people are simply better managers than others.
  • Recommendations:
    • Use a calendar
    • Use a commitment tracking system (close the open loops in your life)
    • Budget your time (time blocking)
    • Eliminate distractions (shut off notifications to certain apps, do not disturb mode, airplane mode, etc.)
    • Utilize a scheduling tool. (I recommend Calendly.)

    • The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry
