Fortunately, time management is not rocket science. 90% of good time management is simply a matter of proper planning and disciplined living. For the Christian, that simply means applying biblical principles to our daily schedules. While there are many specific techniques of time management which vary with an individual’s circumstances, the basics requirements of effectiveness are universal: Proper, God-directed planning, and disciplined living that allows us to carry out those plans.
