Publisher's Summary

Manage your time the way Jesus managed his with a biblical antidote to swamped to-do lists and hurried schedules.

Despite the overwhelming amount of resources for time management and work-life balance, the ability to cultivate the efficiency and equilibrium needed to manage all our worthy pursuits can often feel frustratingly out of reach. The reason for our struggle is that productivity and time-management systems focus on individual habits rather than more meaningful and lasting lifestyle changes. But as it turns out, there is a better way to reach our full potential.

We don’t need just another approach to changing our habits. What we need is an operating system that takes into account the full scope of our lives. In this audiobook, best-selling author Jordan Raynor presents this system, using seven powerful time-management principles drawn from the example of how Jesus lived: 

  1. Start with the word: Find meaningful connection with the author of time daily. 
  2. Let your yes be yes: Accept only the commitments you can fulfill.
  3. Dissent from the Kingdom of Noise: Create room for silence, stillness, and reflection.
  4. Prioritize your yeses: Confidently maintain your commitments.
  5. Accept your “unipresence”: Focus on one important thing at a time.
  6. Embrace productive rest: Live the God-designed rhythms of rest which are productive for our goals and souls. 
  7. Eliminate all hurry: Embrace productive busyness while ruthlessly eliminating hurry from our lives.

With these principles, you’ll see how Jesus managed his time on Earth and how he responded to human constraints much like the ones you face today. More than that, you’ll discover corresponding practices that will help you embrace the best, most Christlike version of yourself possible: purposeful, present, and wildly productive.

Critic Reviews

“Mixing the theological and the tactical, Jordan Raynor offers a deeply original and practical take on time management, busyness, and the human urge toward living meaningfully.” (Cal Newport, New York Times best-selling author of Deep Work

“As Christ followers, we need to approach time management and productivity through a theological and worshipful lens. Jordan serves us well by leading the way.” (Ruth Chou Simons, best-selling author of Beholding and Becoming and GraceLaced)

“Jordan Raynor’s paradigm of purpose, presence, and productivity is excellent. But learning it from Jesus? That’s the magic.” (John Mark Comer, best-selling author of The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry)

Redeeming your time is hard work but so worth it!!!

My suggestion: listen to this book and implement it in your life. The way that the author sets up the book and all the additional resources is very helpful. If you can grab the concepts, put work behind adopting them, and build a set up that fits, this is a game changer. Jordan, Thank you.

Incredibly practical

So so good! I've never read such a practical book. To have it read by the author himself is also brilliant.

Great book

This book had some great biblical principles about discipline and sabbath. I learnt a lot and I'm keen to start implementing some of them into my own life! However, get ready to hear a lot about his website and the resources on there as you may want to check them out too!
