The Most Important Thing First

A few weeks back, I made a change to my weekly schedule, and though it’s only been a few weeks, it’s shaping up to be one of the best leadership decisions I’ve ever made.

On Monday morning, before I do anything else, I put the finishing touches on the upcoming weekend’s sermon. It’s probably already 80% done, but I finish it all up and send the final version to everyone that needs it.

Not only does this give our graphics and production people the message early, it means that my most important task of the week is done early. It’s kind of like the tithing principle, I guess. Do the most important thing first.

I can’t tell you how freeing it is to go through the week’s meetings and schedule knowing that I’m ready to go for Sunday. I’m really a fan of this new schedule.
