InterVarsity Press, Sep 20, 2009 - Religion
Winner of the 2004 ECPA Platinum Book Award! Is the clock a slavemaster or a tool that serves you? Does the quantity of your responsibilities squeeze out the quality of your life? Are urgent things so pressing that you don't have "inner time" to sort out what's really important? How can you discern what God wants you to do? Charles Hummel's classic booklet Tyranny of the Urgent has sold over one million copies. Now for the first time he expands on the life-changing perspective that has transformed the lives of thousands struggling to keep from being swept away by the rush of life. Gathered in this book are proven principles taken straight from biblical teaching, from today's time-management experts and from Hummel's own life experience. You'll discover how to
  • make the calendar your friend
  • manage your life instead of your time
  • get motivated
  • stay open to God's guidance in small choices
  • avoid being dragged down by past choices
  • develop "inner time" for reflection and planning
and much more! If you have too much to do and not enough time to do it, this book is for you.
