I’ll say it again…I thought I’d never read another book about time management. Life had other plans.
I’m in a new season of life, and I have more free time than ever. It’s a wonderful position to be in until I realized I waste a lot of it. I thought I’d wrangled my time wasting tendencies until I set a personal deadline recently for a writing project. I needed help and Take Back Your Time by Morgan Tyree delivered.
I dove into the book with resistance at first, but quickly warmed up to the idea of learning how to manage my time. Morgan shared her personal journey in a relatable way and her wit and openness made it easy to read.
Before she helped me find out my green, yellow, and red time zones, she led me through a series of exercises to track my hours and minutes.
It is easy to think you are spending more or less time on certain tasks than you really are. When you track where your time goes, you will have the facts; when you have the facts, you can adjust accordingly.Morgan Tyree
The author gave me practical and insightful ways to match my zones with my goals, personalities, and seasons of life. She reminded me to be patient as I learn what works and what doesn’t.
Morgan is passionate about our lives being full, not busy. I share her passion and was thankful for her perspective.
Self-care, multi-tasking, and calendars are covered in the book, and she made me pause and think about the gift and responsibility of the 24 hours we have each day. We learn to manage our time well, not only for ourselves, but to serve others as well.
“Goals should be self-serving and others-serving. This is where the true blessing of achieving your goals will be realized.”
I enjoyed the thoughtful quotes and relevant Bible verses interspersed within the text, and I appreciate the fun, concise, and direct way she encouraged me to take back my time!
