If you’re like me, you constantly feel like there’s not enough time to do all the important things that you want and need to do. As you reflect on 2010 and plan for 2011, it’s important that you don’t just start adding a bunch of stuff that you are hoping to do. Rather, this should be a time of prioritizing what’s important.
To help with this, let me encourage you to watch this incredibly practical video by Andy Stanley, pastor of North Point Community Church. It’s a message called “Capacity” from a helpful series called “Time of Your Life.”
His main point is that: Priority Determines Capacity.
