Time Wisdom in REFORM Magazine

Added about 9 years ago by Sacristy Press

The first of two articles written by Canon Dr Stephen Cherry on the subject of Time Wisdom has been published in the November 2012 edition of REFORM Magazine. In it, Stephen discusses clumping and threading, two concepts from his book Beyond Busyness. It starts:

REFORM Magazine front cover, November 2012Beyond Busyness: Time Wisdom for Ministry (cover) I recall the day when I first looked at the “Management and Leadership” section of a bookshop. I was being a bit furtive. This did not feel right. I had been vicar of a parish for about four years, I think, and at last the penny had dropped: There is more work to be done in ministry than anyone ever imagines. In fact, there isn’t time to do it all.

I was beginning to panic; but my first visit to the Management and Leadership section was not about finding a new job – it was a quest to see whether someone had the answer to the question of how you get everything done when there doesn't seem to be enough time.

And there began what has proved to be a productive exploration.
