I’ve been reading Bob Hyatt’s PastorHacks ministry productivity blog. Some of it is way too techie for me, but a number of his posts have to do with plain old self-management. His Sept. 28 post on “9 Things, Pt. 4” addresses how to handle telephone calls. The Sept. 14 post, “9 Things, Pt. 3,” talks about in-person meetings. He talks about the way we often feel mean when we set limits. But when we are able to set appropriate limits, we help both ourselves and others, and we can keep moving toward our ministry goals.
