What We Actually Do

October 21, 2013

in the generous life

Congratulations Hannah on being the 14th poster in
the Favorite Holiday Traditions contest. You’ve
won some great teas from Heavenly Special Teas.


On a recent generous post about time use, Gaye of Calm Healthy Sexy commented:

Most of us probably wouldn’t say that perfect gifts, perfect decorations, perfect food, etc. are more important than our sexual relationship with our husband, but sometimes we act that way (or at least I do!)

 There is always a gap between what we intend to do and what we actually do. 

Sometimes that gap is small and sometimes it’s … well, larger than we’d like it to be. Life has a way of happening and if we don’t get very intentional about it, what we want to do can get pushed out of the way by the demands of life.

An interesting experiment to try is to write down how you actually use your time for a few days. Keep a pad and pen by your side and every hour (or two or three depending on your lifestyle) write down what you’ve actually been doing.

If you like what you see, great! If you are a bit shocked by what you see (I was the first time … and the second time) then use your list to see what activities and interruptions are taking your life off course.

Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.  1 John 3:18  ESV

It is crazy to see where our time is going. If you want to get crazy do every 15 minutes. We will start to see we each have plenty of time to do what is important to use if we prioritize correctly and get rid of some of the unneeded things in our lives!
