Albert Lucas is an amazing man. He holds the world record for the most objects juggled at once which is 13 rings. I’m sure Mr. Lucas didn’t start out his juggling act with 13 rings. It probably took him many years of practice attain that world record performance.
Time management works the same way. We get frustrated with so many things to juggle at once. Work, home, church and community, all have to be juggled at the same time. And when the number of items juggled exceeds our skill level, something will hit the floor.
So, just like a professional juggler, we have to consciously grow our juggling capacity with experience, realizing that everyone has a limit. There is also a limit to what is humanly possible. Even Albert Lucas can’t juggle 14 rings.
Living up to, but not exceeding, your capacity to keep things juggled is an important part of redeeming the time.
