Creating Margin

April 29, 2018

INTRODUCTION

The less the margin, the greater the stress (and vice versa)

KEY POINT: Managing margin makes life for meaningful

  • Distractions enhance drift

We have a tendency to drift in life…lose focus on the important

Focus off the important and onto the immediate

  • Demands diminish devotion

Busyness burns emotional energy: Stewing then spewing

Demands make us demanding

  • Decisions impact destiny

What we choose impacts what we experience

Learning to choose the better

When I say “yes” to something I am saying “no” to something else (and vice versa)

Simplifying Life: creating margin

  • Prioritize

What’s important? What’s my purpose? How am I going to demonstrate it?

  • Plan

Being intentional – living with purpose

Time: putting the big things down first

Finances: giving and saving first

  • Process

Learning to filter the things in our lives

  • Practice

Being present and purposeful

CONCLUSION

Bringing Jesus to the center

Begin to deleverage our lives: create some margin to live more meaningfully

RESPONSE: Lord, help me create margin to live better
