What are the things that matter?
* Time in God's presence
* Time with family
* Time with spouse
* Time with friends
* Time for quiet and just myself
* Taking care of myself physically and spiritually, which takes time.
All this on top of the required time we spend at work or school.
Basically how we use our time is what matters.
I've heard it said, "Look at someone's checkbook and you'll see their priorities." It's true, how we spend our money shows a lot about what we care about. How we spend our time is just as telling.
This Spring, as new life is just beginning, take a few moments to do a time inventory of your schedule. Does your calendar reflect what you believe to be your priorities? Some days we don't have much choice, but over a week or month's time, we should see a good reflection of what's important to us.
Time for my own inventory.
