Do the hardest and most important things first. First for me means right after I get up! For those of you who aren’t in your prime until 3pm, do it then. I think its better to give the hardest and most important things your best than to give those things your leftovers. So, if you are at your best at 5am do it then, if 10am do it then or 3pm do it then! This morning I woke up at 5:20am. I prayed and read my bible for an hour and then went swimming. Getting with God was and is the most important thing I can do during the day so I did it first. Swimming is the hardest mental and physical thing I do during the day so I did it second.
This tip increases my effectiveness and enjoyment on a daily basis for two reasons. First, it just feels good to know that 2 hours into my day I’ve already done the hardest and most important thing I could do with my day. Second, I feel as prepared I can be for what the day may bring me because I’ve spent time talking to God and more importantly hearing from Him.
