Household management expert Don Aslett writes,
“We’ve all heard the ideas and quotes of “the famous” on management. But where do the best, most original, easiest to understand, easiest to apply, most effective and inexpensive ideas come from? Right from home and the neighborhood. A good 80% of the management skills used even in business are taught and learned AT HOME from family and friends, around the house and playground, not on a campus anywhere. Formal education might further develop and rename a few of these systems, but the real fountainhead and finishing school of top management is the home.”
I think his idea is on target. The best way to learn good time management skills is being around those who have them. This is one reason why Titus chapter 2 instructs the older women to teach the younger women to be “keepers at home.”
What clear instructions those are for a young household executive to learn her trade well so she can best redeem the time.
