The Mega List of Time Management Resources

I said I would share a bunch of time management resources with you

I have struggled with time management over the years and have read a lot on the topic.

Here are some useful books,  articles and Bible verses I have come across in the never ending quest to manage my time efficiently:

My top two time management resources:

It is EXCELLENT. Crystal covers just about everything you need to know in order to make the most of the time you have.  It’s so good. I can’t believe it’s free!

This is a 30 page ebook that cuts to the heart of the matter. I like it because it is a quick read and because it gave me a real wake up call. This book helped me see that one person can only do so much. We have to choose what is important to us and in line with our priorities.

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise,  making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
-Ephesians 5:16

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:

a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

- Ecclesiasties 3:1-8

  2. Awesome list! I want to click thru to all of them! Thanks for including my Motherhood Your Way post! :)

  3. Thanks Amanda. I love your post. Especially the pictures – the visual is very helpful!

  4. Neat idea and a TON of work…thanks for sharing!

  5. Stacy,
    Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog! I’m glad you liked the photography posts. The D7000 is a great camera, but the D90 is also very good for a few hundred less if you’re on a budget.

    I feel like I’ve stumbled upon your blog before. It looks so familiar! Anyway, thanks for stopping by. I’ll have to peruse some of your posts now.

    ~Catherine :)

  6. wow! this is an awesome list of resources! I struggle with time management. uugh. It is usually because I make poor choices. I could right a book on how to effectively time manage, but what I CHOOSE to do is often different. Like right now…I should be going to be instead of blog surfiing:)

    Your blog looks great…I’m anxious to look around some more!

    • Yes, knowing and choosing to act on that knowledge are two different things!

      That blog surfing can really suck you in (ask me how I know!). Glad you surfed by here.

  7. What a fantastic list!

    I have moments where I want to pay attention to time management, so I spend a few weeks reading books about it and doing not much else. And then I get back to life the way it was before.

    Haha. Talk about time management.

  8. Great list! I will pick only 2 things to look at though, otherwise I’ll waste too much time looking at how to manage time effectively, lol. ;-) Those ebooks sound interesting. i’ve been working on time management and I’m getting a bit better, but I still need some help in that department.
