I don’t know that there are enough words to explain how excited I was to read Matt Perman’s book “What’s Best Next: How the Gospel Transforms the Way You Get Things Done“. I can definitely be a busybody, involved with a lot of activities both at work and at home; and I know that it’s important that I begin to prioritize things in an appropriate way. The truth is that there will always be things that “need” to get done and that NEED to get done. I’m all too guilty of letting the urgent crowd out the important. I’ve been determined to be better, and this book was a huge help for me!
There were so many things that I appreciated about this book; however, his thoughts on email and how to handle it helped me the most. I get SO. MANY. EMAILS. between my work and personal accounts it’s overwhelming to me- as I prefer that my inbox number be as low as possible. His approach to email helped me to pare it down and manage it much more efficiently.
This book really resonated with my thought that “good things aren’t always God things”. As a result, I need to rely more on the gospel as a measure of what I’m pursuing and how things (and what things) are getting done.
This would be an EXCELLENT book to check out for the new year. Start the year off strong, doing things in a gospel centered way. You won’t be disappointed!
Be encouraged! Peace and Blessings
