What kind of time-management person are you? Busy or Productive?

What does a busy version of Fonna look like?

  • Talk about how busy I am

  • Having a long to-do list that doesn't align with my strategic goals

  • Spending time clearing my emails (yes, even the newsletters)

  • Multitasking inefficiently

  • Taking a meeting that could've been an email

  • Getting stuck and drowning in details (there's a big difference in being detail-oriented)

  • Saying yes to TONS of projects and stretching myself thin

  • Attempting to do everything myself

70+ Quotes from How to Be Here by Rob Bell - Part Two

Have you ever heard someone on a stage or in the office or the classroom doing the work, but he’s simultaneously searching for someone to tell him how good, accomplished, skillful, or excellent he is? It’s as if he’s searching for applause in order to keep going you can sometimes see it in their eyes, this deeply unfulfilled sense that they are incomplete, that they need the strokes and affirmation of others to be content…

If you are looking for a particular response to bring you joy, that response may never come.

70+ Quotes from How to Be Here by Rob Bell - Part One

But you don’t have to know the seventeenth step. You only have to know the first step. Because the first number is always 1.

Start with 1.
