This is the fourth in a five-part series sharing answers to the question: “What is the biggest challenge you face right now in living a more unhurried life?” Here are the questions on priorities that arose from our community:

  1. I want to be able to serve without overdoing it.
  2. How do we deal with the impulse to procrastinate as it relates to priorities?
  3. How do I deal with urgent things that aren’t all that important?
  4. What about my relationship with time – managing time and finding time?

We’ll take a fresh look at the story of Mary & Martha. We’ll dig deeper into the “why” of procrastination. We’ll get a refresher course on Stephen Covey’s Time Management Matrix. And, finally, we’ll talk about our relationship with time itself.
