Quick Tips for Hurried Saints Jun 10, 2007
Hummel's work here could not be more needed among American Christians today. In a culture that places a great deal of emphasis on doing everything fast and as quickly as possible, the author teaches us how to distinguish the urgent from the important. Drawing heavily upon the life of Jesus, Hummel gives practical tips on how to get the best of our time, rather than our time getting the best of us. This booklet is one every American Christian today should read.
An Intro. to Distinguishing the Important & the Urgent May 24, 2002
This classic little booklet from Charles Hummel was one of the earliest resources (first published in 1967) to first introduce the distinction between the important and the urgent that later time and/or life management books such MacKenzie's "The Time Trap" and Covey's "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" incorporated. But Hummel introduced it in a Christian and Biblical context where God's Will and Word take precedence in determining what's important. This resource is a simple introduction to time management using the following four steps: decide what's important, discover how one's time is now being spent, budget the hours and follow through. Each step is given some exposition. If one already has Hummel's newer book "Freedom from Tyranny of the Urgent," then this booklet isn't necessary since it is essentially incorporated into the book. But for those Christians who have an initial adversity to the whole concept of time management and scheduling and don't see how it is integral to discipleship or produces greater freedom rather than bondage, this booklet may make you reconsider your belief. For those who want more insight into time and life management from a Christian perspective, read Ken Smith's "It's About Time." Hummel is one of many who recommends it.
This short booklet contains extrordinary insight! Oct 11, 2000
I don't know how many times I have forsaken the really important things in life for the urgent (such as a phone call, work assignment, etc.) This book is a challenging reminder to never forsake the truly vital things in life (i.e. family, God, relationships) for other items that must be done that day or week. In other words, carpe diem! A must read for anyone seeking real fulfillment and meaning in life.
Challenging, practical insights for Biblical use of time Mar 30, 1999
All people, from kings to paupers, have 24 hours in a day. This book(let) helps the growing Christian make wise choices in regards to his/her use of time by offering motivational and practical insights. A must-read for anyone serious about living life to the fullest, not just existing through time. Every time I read this quick-read, I am challenged. Highly recommended!
