August is the month to evaluate the time of our life.
Time is a big-deal. Time measures what we do with the days of our life. Our culture tends to push us into the mindset of doing and achieving to be first and foremost. But. When all is said and done, time is a gift to be invested with love, grace, peace, and joy as our top priority.
It takes time learn how to live. Learning is a crucial value of living the best.
The Timely Grid Of Why
Your “why” makes a difference in this world whether it appears to be a big deal or not. The thing is . . . the power and meaning of your purpose . . . comes from God rather than social media or the current approval rating you’ve placed in your life. Time management can be frustrating; however, it’s easier when time is navigated with the “why” at the forefront. (Excerpt from the article, TableThink Coaching Advice: Watch The Clock And More.)
The voice in our head often speaks counter to the grid because of the nature of our culture. Being stressed is more common than being blessed in the moment. Taking time to re-evaluate and shift some things around can change the way the days are navigated.
The grid of why encompasses every piece of our life, including possessions. It’s a timely subject. In fact think on these words from an elderly friend:
It’s better to get rid of something now than to have someone go through your stuff after you leave this earth. What we keep becomes part of our story. Let’s be honest, our stuff leaves a message that’s not always complimentary.
You can’t do anything about what you leave behind after death; however, you can take care of it now, unless, today is your day to leave the world. (Excerpt from the article, Organize One Thing One Day A Week.)
The grid comes from values rather than rules. Our life is not to be a carbon copy of one another but to be who we are to be as an individual created for more than can be imagined.
Take Some Time
- Pray. Develop your why and what it means to living each day as a gift.
- Pray. Learn how to manage your time to live the best.
- Pray. Learn to say “yes” to only what’s yours to do.
- Pray. Learn to enjoy each and every day.

Saturday features the weekend slow-down. Taking a breath on the weekend, slowing down, and stepping back from the busyness of the week is smart living. It takes effort and practice to make the weekend slow-down routine a part of life. The thing is . . . as simple as it sounds . . . weekend slow-down serves our “why.”
One of the obstacles to the weekend slow-down is the lack of awareness of its overall healthy impact on every piece of life.
Thinking through the things which lead to your best weekend slow-down generates motivation to make it happen. It’s helpful to use the specific elements to create a personalized weekend slow-down menu.
