Many of the successful people of our time wake up very early. Why? This is because most people find that the earlier they wake up (within reason) the more productive they are with their day.

 

Are you striving to be more productive? If so, these tips can help you to get up early so that you can take advantage of those early morning hours and enjoy greater productivity.

 

It’s important to remember, though, that getting up earlier won’t benefit you if you’re suffering from sleep deprivation. Ensu

Nighttime is magical. We’re all so wise at night. We can plan out the perfect day, but then our plans go awry once the day gets here. The reason for this is that we try to make decisions on the fly, and we’re too influenced by what feels good in the moment.

 

Consider these ideas for effective planning at night and then following through with those plans:

 

1. Know your goals. What do you want to accomplish? You can’t make effective plans until you know what you’re trying to do. If you don't kno

I just want to share just a little bit of Scripture with you, Psalms, 139: 23 and 24

Search me, O God, and know my heart;
Try me, and know my anxieties;
24 And see if there is any wicked way in me,
And lead me in the way everlasting.

Listen, none of us want to think about the things that are wrong in our life are the things that are bad about us. We just rather think about the good stuff. We'd rather ask God to bless us, but sometimes when God wants to bless you after the blessing, he must break

You are AMAZING. 

You are BEAUTIFUL. 

You are CAPABLE. 

It’s so easy to get down on yourself because of comparisonitis or wondering why your last venture, meeting, post, email, or event didn’t go as well as you had planned. 

It’s tempting to give up altogether-but don’t. Everyone goes through highs and lows whether you are an entrepreneur or at a corporate job. 

But when everything doesn’t go exactly as you had planned, don’t let this change what you think about yourself. 

You have accomplished

I want to let you know you are doing a great job fathers of this great nation and worldwide, but there is more to be accomplished with our time here. We must beat the drum for Championship Fathering!

It truly is time for all us fathers to plant our feet in the ground and make a stand to guide the physical, mental, and spiritual destiny of our families. So

Dad was a "man's man:" A passionate fisherman; skilled woodworker; avid gun collector; grease monkey. In the summers, he and his buddies would drive to Canada and spend days fishing for bass and trout. He could build and repair cabinetry like a professional. His collection of World War II-era guns was something he prized. He rebuilt a Corvair engine in our basement. When I think of what a prototypical American dad is supposed to be, I think of my Dad.

One day, as I was thinking of some different areas that frustrated me about my life, I came to a startling conclusion. Many of my so-called problems were simply a lack of self-discipline. I made a little list of improvements to incorporate. Maybe something here will help you, too. These may seem
oversimplified, but sometimes I need to get back to simplicity!

1. Regular Bedtime and Wake-up time.

When I work during the week, I am forced to comply with this. But as a teacher,

Daily Devotional: Love -vs- Sex

Love Love Love Love So Lovely...

There's more to sex than mere skin on skin.
Sex is as much spiritual mystery as physical fact.
As written in Scripture, "The two become one."
Since we want to become spiritually one with the Master,
we must not pursue the kind of sex that avoids commitment
and intimacy, leaving us more lonely than ever—
the kind of sex that can never "become one."
 
There is a sense in which sexual sins are different from all others.
In sexual sin we violate the sacredness of

"There was once a man who had two sons. The younger said to his father, 'Father, I want right now what's coming to me. So the father divided the property between them.
 
It wasn't long before the younger son packed his bags and left for a distant country. There, undisciplined and dissipated, he wasted everything he had. After he had gone through all his money, there was a bad famine all through that country and he began to hurt. He signed on with a citizen there who assigned him to his fields
