There is only one way to Heaven. Jesus Christ said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No man cometh unto the Father but by me.” While that may not be politically correct in our day, it is still the truth.
With time management on the other hand, we can allow for some diversity of thought and technique. A good manager hires competent people and then gets out of the way to allow them to get the job done their way. God is very creative and the Bible says we are His workmanship. That means He has made us with a wide variety of gifts and talents which vary from person to person.
When we insist that everyone subscribe to our particular type of day-planner or our pet technique of organizing our desk, we create unnecessary friction that may breed resentment and stifle creativity.
In spiritual matters, pluralism deceives people and keeps them from Heaven. But with time management a little diversity may redeem the time.
