Review: Taming the To-Do List by:Glynnis Whitwer

Taming the To-Do List
About the Book:
Ever just wish the world would stop for a day so you could catch up? 

No matter how much we accomplish in a day, we nearly always feel a little guilt over what we didn’t do. But do we really have more to do than the women who came before us? Maybe not.

In Taming the To-Do List, Glynnis Whitwer exposes a seismic shift in society: from one in which most of us were proactive to one in which we carry the burden of having to respond—to every email, text, tweet, and message we receive. This creates a cycle where everyone else sets the priorities for our days rather than us directing our own lives. The result? We procrastinate, putting off the important stuff for later while we tend to the “urgent” stuff right now.

It’s time to take back your schedule! Ready to tame that to-do list? This book shows you how.

My Review:
 In this fast paced world everything comes at a cost. The author discusses Luke 14:25-30, she goes on to explain that Jesus wanted us to always take into consideration the cost of the decisions we make. We have to resolute and intentional on the things that we give our attention to. Our attention is valuable we must never forget that. It should be just as important to us as it is to God that our decisions bear weight. If one thing gets more of our attention than something else will most definitely suffer.

 The author does a great job in getting us to succeed at Taming the To-Do List, so that not only our home life is better but that our spiritual life is better as well. And my favorite part is where she gets you to think through on what God may have called you to do that you are putting off. Good stuff! Great read!
