It’s Time Management Tuesday and usually, I start the day by telling you how to get control over your time and life.
This Tuesday, I want to talk to you about how to end your day right
Tie up the loose ends
Spend some time going over your day and finishing up what is undone. If there is anything that you can get done, then do it now, not later.
Finish what you can
No matter how much you do, you are going to have to have an end point to your working hours. Be fair to yourself here: if you are working 12 hour days, are you really setting aside enough time to take care of yourself? Log your time spent and evaluate your hours. Which brings us to my next point:
Chronicle your day
At the end of the day, when you’ve done all you can reasonably do in a reasonable time frame, make a log of what you did today, and analyze it. How did you do? What needs improvement?
Remember the good things about your journey.
In addition to keeping an actual log of your day, keep a journal. It’s important that you emphasize the success and victories of your day so that you stay encouraged about your future. And when you do, don’t forget to mention the most important people in your life. Which brings us to our (almost) conclusion
Touch base with your family
Even if you are super busy and simply can’t spend the family time you need, always have dinner together, if you possibly can. Studies show that those who eat dinner together have the happiest families. It’s the common denominator that all well-performing school age students and healthy families have…they all eat together. Is it any wonder that the family who eats together stays together? What? Did I say that right? No. It actually goes like this: “The family that prays together stays together” There it is again…that element of family time. The bottom line is, if you have a happy family life, you are keeping your priorities right. And you can’t have a happy family life if you don’t have a good devotional life. Evening is a perfect time to gather the family around for good devotions.
It’s also the perfect time for touching base with your Creator and making sure that your life aligns with His Handbook.
Have a great evening! (If you want, you can leave a comment here)
