I enjoy reading the latest books on business and management success tactics. I like them not because I’m a wealthy businessman or have any aspirations to become one, but because they often give significant insight on how to best manage my time.
For example, a book I am now reading says, “There can only be one most important thing. Many things may be important, but only one thing can be the most important.” In a business context, that means the executive who gets ahead is the one who can sort through all the possible “good things” he could do today and identify the one thing that will bring the greatest return for the time invested.
But, when we enlarge this principle to include the spiritual consequences of how we spend time, it takes on even more significance. That’s because there is only one thing you can focus on today that will make the greatest impact for eternity.
Identifying what that one thing is and focusing on it will redeem the time.
