Radio minister Dr. Michael Guido composed the following four steps for success:
1. Plan Passionately
2. Prepare Prayerfully
3. Proceed Productively
4. Pursue Patiently
These four steps give a good summary of how God wants us to approach any major project.
Plan Passionately. Ask God for a vision of what He wants you to accomplish.
Prepare Prayerfully. Go forward on your knees. Invest time seeking God for each new phase of the project.
Proceed Productively. A big part of redeeming the time is simply being productive with each moment God gives you. Make sure you are doing the right thing and make sure you are doing it the right way.
Pursue Patiently. If you know you’re doing what God wants you to do, wait on Him for the results in His timing.
That four good steps for redeeming the time.
