Learning about Productivity

messy deskI am constantly on the hunt to sharpen the productivity of my life. My life goes something like this: husband, father, son, brother, full-time employee, part-time minister, aspiring writer, thinking about another academic degree, must carve out time for exercise, need to spend more time playing with my family, thinking about the next great idea that could change the world, planning for retirement, stayed up late, got up early, and need get done everything that’s on my calendar for today. We all have more than enough to fill our time. It is why I constantly look for efficiencies in my work so that my life away from tasks is not overwhelmed. Like you, I would like to actually enjoy my life. Here are a few links that I’ve recently found helpful.
