Getting things done is a problem. Busy-ness, though, is not a problem. How is that possible?
There are plenty of motivational blogs and books about Getting Things Done (e.g. here, here). But none of them really get to the heart of things.
I have greatly enjoyed three recent blog posts by CJ Mahaney on the topic (see here, here and here), and there is more to come, I think. We can be lazy and busy at the same time, because we put off what is most important in order to do what we like (don’t I know it!). Then we don’t get things done. This is the sin of procrastination. It is a heart issue which must be addressed with the gospel.
Looking forward to the next installment.
