  • Does your to-do list seem to overwhelm you some days? With all our fancy journals and apps, shouldn’t managing our time get easier instead of harder? What if we followed a 100-year-old proven technique instead of today’s lastest-greatest fad? This simple method was working when you couldn’t text someone for an instant answer. Yet still, people managed to build the first great skyscrapers, invent the automobile, and even design the zipper (in 1913). A lot got done using this method, so there must be something to it.

 

 

 

A Special Note About the Election

On Tuesday the citizens of the United States will elect a new president. If current polls hold true, and if past elections are any example, about half of us will have voted for the candidate who wins. The other half of us will have four years of living under a president we didn’t want to see elected.

If your candidate wins, no gloating. You’re better than that. If your candidate loses, no fears. You’re stronger than that.

Instead, if your candidate wins, pray for the new president every day. It’s the hardest job in the world. He or she is going to need your prayers. If your candidate doesn’t win, still pray for the president every day, because if you believe in prayer, you know it can move mountains, even if that mountain is named Clinton or Trump.

God bless America!
