Set Priorities for Use of Time


Scripture doesn’t directly address the work week, but does seem to indicate that a six-day work week is not excessive. When you as a business owner or manager consistently adopts an excessively long work day that seldom provides for any relaxation or outside activities, you’re establishing an unwritten policy that the only way to get ahead is to work long hours. This puts your employees, and you, under great stress and eventually leads to decreased productivity. (1) This ultimately causes high turnover and necessitates higher salaries (increased costs) to entice new employees. Owners and business managers must understand that money is only a temporary motivator. A balance must be struck, for you and your employees, between Career, Financial, Spiritual, Physical, Intellectual, Family, and Social – your “Wheel of Life”. (2)

Business planning is essential for business prosperity. Businesses, like people, don’t plan to fail – they fail to plan.

(1) Know the state of your flocks, and put your heart into caring for your herds. Proverbs 27:23 (NLT)

(2) And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown. 1 Corinthians 9:25 (NKJV) (emphasis added)
