Every Christian must be fully Christian by bringing God into his whole life, not merely into some spiritual realm. — Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Isaiah 32:8 says that “he who is noble plans noble things, and on noble things he stands.”

Julie Morgenstern notes, “Workers who can consistently decide with clarity and ease which tasks are most important when under pressure are the most prized in every organization.

The two linchpins of my system were David Allen’s Getting Things Done and Stephen Covey’s First Things First.

To be a gospel-driven Christian means to be on the lookout to do good for others to the glory of God, in all areas of life, and to do this with creativity and competence.

the chief guiding principle for being productive is actually love.

Generosity is at the heart of true productivity in all areas of life.

Structure your life by living your life mainly from a flexible routine, not a set of lists.

You need to know what’s most important (define), weave it into your life (architect), and then get rid of the rest (reduce).

we should have a sense of adventure in doing good. That is, we should be radical and risky and creative and abundant in using our effectiveness to make life better for others.
