Tally Your Time Use

How do you use your time?

Are you sure? Most of us spend more time on some things than we think, and less on other things than we tell ourselves.

If you usually get everything done, it’s not a big deal. If you’re like most people, never done, how you use your time matters. Of particular interest to me is if you have enough time for your marriage. Starving a marriage of time is a sure way to cripple or kill it.

This week why not keep track of your time? Ideally, get a little notebook and keep notes.

Good reminder, but I did chuckle a little, only because I am in the season of having young children. That means even the best-laid plans get interrupted and unaccomplished. Just yesterday it took an hour before I could get in the shower because every time I shut the bathroom door someone had to use the toilet. It took me 45 minutes to fix the bed because someone needed help with cereal. Someone needed a fanny wiped. Someone needed help with buttons. Someone got upset.

I am certainly not complaining, just voicing my reality right now. And because that is my reality, being careful and proactive about priorities and time spent is even more important. After all, a button buttoned ministers far more to my children than my bed getting fixed in under 5 minutes.

@libl – Kids, especially young ones, do make time management a challenge. It does get better as they get older!

This is a fact I’ve not been able to convince my wife of yet:

Intent matters and the fact that you make an effort, is much more important than if you actually accomplish feeding the marriage. When you cease making the effort. It is seen, it hurts, and it embitters.

Excellent point.

Think one reason most don’t keep track isthe same reason many won’t track expenses, fear of finding out the truth.
