Time management fundamentals – daily, weekly, monthly planning; vision work; accountability systems; priorities—remain the same over time. But over the last quarter century our collective view of time mastery shifted.
Your passion for family time prompted you to organize your business around your kids, spouse, etc. You cherished the flexibility to juggle things and the freedom not to miss those important events. But is that really how it has turned out?
The Super Heroes Behind Your Business
Having God’s will at the center of everything you do is a cornerstone ingredient to having a supportive spouse in your business and home life.
The Holy Spirit will prompt you in big and small ways how you can invite your husband to stretch and grow in his own faith. This was the case for some unsuspecting friends - fathers, and husbands - who happened to be at our house for a barbeque at the wrong or right time, depending on how you look at it.
Little did they know what they were about to get in to; they were as vulnerable as lambs.
I promise I didn’t premeditate the plot. The Holy Spirit inspired the master plan only 5 hours before our guests arrived.
For the past several years, I’ve had the honor of being the leader of Kids for Jesus (K4J), a virtue building program) in my parish and school. It carries great responsibility, but getting to be silly makes helping out with K4J be more fun than burdensome.
As part of the K4J School of Virtue, K4J surprises are random, funny, unexpected events that help the school kids joyfully remember and absorb the monthly mission and virtue. They are the “icing on the cake” of the program.
I was particularly looking forward to the surprise we had planned this month during the K4J BE A REAL HERO Mission. Being a real hero is recognizing and accepting God’s grace and doing his will.
Our “surprise” was to have several adults dress up in superhero costumes. They would crash the kids’ lunch or recess, quizzing them on the definition of a real hero.
