Following the success of his previous book, Beyond Busyness: Time Wisdom for Ministry, Dr Stephen Cherry has distilled the essence of Time Wisdom into this bite-sized book, essential for anyone seeking to restore some balance in their busy life.

As part of his “Give up busyness for Lent” campaign – or as a standalone guide – this concise book will help you get to grips with Time Wisdom in just an hour!

Why give up busyness?
You might just find you get more done...

Busyness has become a disease.
The developed world is suffering from an epidemic of major proportions, and the disease at the heart of it is busyness. We are addicted to doing one thing after another with as little down-time as possible. This is a sickness, a spiritual sickness.

Why is busyness so bad?

  • It distorts your perception
  • It makes you feel self-important
  • It makes you rude
  • It’s an excuse for impatience
  • It’s an excuse for not getting things done
  • It’s addictive
  • It burns you out
  • It’s lazy – chronic busyness occurs when you have not asked the important questions or decided on your priorities

Learn Time Wisdom in an hour and get your life back!
