Rethinking priorities: What matters most?

Yellow pads of paper filled with tasks. Page after page of calls to be made, reports to be written, meetings to attend. Every minute of my boss’s workday was booked. He was president of a research firm I worked for, and he was known by employees and clients alike as the consummate time manager.

His methods were impressive, to be sure. Effective time-management skills can be tremendously helpful. But for me there’s a lingering question: Do we have our priorities right? Are we paying attention to what ultimately matters most?

Many have found that prayer and spiritual discovery are the most important priorities for each day. Making time to quietly and prayerfully commune with God, Mind, strengthens our trust in God’s care, and cultivates an awareness of divine direction at work.
