Consider: “Procrastinate on Purpose”

With a subtitle of “5 Permissions to Multiply Your Time” paired up with Procrastinate on Purpose as a title, this book sounds a little intriguing, does it not? Rory Vaden is a self-discipline strategist, and he uses this book to expound on a multi-step funnel to help make decisions on what is best to do at any given time. Below are several quotations from the book that may be of value to you — and may make you want to read the book…

You can choose to either be focused on things that matter or allow yourself to be swept away in a sea of distraction. (26)

One thing that is always more expensive than a good system is not having a system at all.
And each moment that you don’t do the things you know you should be doing, you are stealing from your future self. (99)

Anything you create a process for today saves you time tomorrow. (114)

There is a big difference between inaction that results from indulgence, and inaction that results from intention; one is procrastination and the other is patience. (151)

Food for thought. Enjoy!

Consider: “The Most Important Place on Earth”

Robert Wolgemuth has written a book to describe a Christian home, The Most Important Place on Earth: What a Christian Home Looks Like and How to Build One.  It is good to consider why your home is the way it is and whether that way is the best way. Wolgemuth looks at several factors and how they affect the tone of a home. The chapters on words and being safe at home are a good investment, even if you read only those.

Here is a brief excerpt from this book, an explanation of the title and purpose:

Why can’t our homes be different in this wonderful way? … Who wants to be normal? Everyone else is normal. This kind of different is good. So I’m taking a chance and tacking signs above the front door of my home and your home. They read, “The Most Important Place on Earth.” The superlative works just fine here.

Ironically, every home, regardless of what’s going on inside, might as well have this over its front door. For the children who live in these homes, it’s a fact, good or bad: it is the most important place on earth. Sit down over a cup of coffee with any family therapist in the country and usually he or she will tell you that, for a kid, it’s at home — whatever it looks like — where everything in life makes up its mind.
