Benefits of setting goals #1

Posted: January 17, 2012 in Uncategorized

Setting and achieving goals is a matter of time management. We all have the same amount of time. The difference is in how we use our time. Bad patterns of time use are easy to fall into and difficult to change. Understanding your purpose and goals is a great motivator in using your time wisely.

Experts suggest the painful task of keeping up with every minute of your time for a couple weeks. This is a very revealing exercise. Through time management we can gain an hour or two (for some more) every week. This can add up to days and weeks over a long period of time. Using time properly actually allows us more time to spend on the things we enjoy.

We have been doing some construction at the church and we have a blueprint to follow. The blueprint is our guide to reach our desired outcome. Goals are the blueprint for designing the life God desire for you. Understanding your purpose and values allows Godly goals that enable living the life God has planned for you.
