Learning to be an expert in time-management has become essential in the process of becoming a missionary while I train and raise support. If you want to do something, you’ll find the time to do it.
Like Nike said, Just do it.
You don’t just say, “I’m going to go for a run.”
You go to the bedroom, slip on your running clothes, and lace up your shoes. You grab your head phones, pick your music, and leave the house. You run and you come home.
On to the next thing.
You have ten minutes in the bathroom. Do some social networking.
Your next blog is 300 words. Write it during morning devotions. Let people see your Christian walk by showing them what it looks like.
Keep a notebook nearby or use Evernote to record ideas to build your online platform, a ministry, or your church.
Like running, the health benefits don’t kick in unless you actually do it. That’s how I manage my time, run three websites, and work a full time job, carefully balancing work, rest, and play every week until I raise full support. In case your interested, I use Google Task manager and Google Calendar. The tools of the trade help me stay on track.
