#Lent,@Twitter, and the real meaning of self denial
nathanrhale.com/self-denial

Brothers and sisters, we are now solidly into the season of Lent. Lent is that time of the Christian year where we remember own sin, our own deep need for a savior. We remember we’re made of dust, and we’re going to back to being dust. Perhaps you’re giving something up for the Lent this year…

Christianity Today compiled a list of some of the most popular things people are giving up on Twitter.

You know what the number one thing people are giving up for Lent is on Twitter?

This is how make sure to keep from getting too #stressed even when I'm overwhelmed with stuff to do!
Learning GTD can be a part of stewarding your time and energy in a way that is consistent with your values. Here's a snapshot of my own toolset/workflow.

We know that spending time alone with other human beings is essential for the deepest relationships. Seems like it would apply to God too, seeing that he also is a person...
Alone time with God means you are opening yourself up to a new level of intimacy with him. It won't always be pleasant, but I promise it will be worth it.

I'm thankful for all we have to learn about our Lord Jesus from our Blessed Mother, the Theotokos.

The same Jesus Who turned water into wine can transform your home, your life, your family, and your future. He is still in the miracle-working business, and His business is the business of transformation.

I think having (at the very least) a running task is essential! 
 
A fun article about To-Do lists, or as we like to call them, Next Actions lists.

Where do to do lists come from? We've uncovered the surprising history of the to do list and how you can design a to do list that actually works:

How to have a mind like water
http://nathanrhale.com/mind-like-water/

In David Allen’s classic book on personal productivity, Getting Things Done he describes an ideal state of mind:

"Imagine throwing a pebble into a still pond. How does the water respond? The answer is, totally appropriately to the force and mass of the input; then it returns to calm. It doesn’t overreact or underreact."

So why do we care about this?

A mind like water is a disciplined mind, a mind focused on the right things, at the right times. David Allen places this in the context of personal productivity, getting the things you need to get done, done. David Allen’s Getting Things Done system can help you clear the clutter from your daily task list and help you order your life in a way that is consistent with your values.

I think there’s actually a spiritual component to this, if we’re open to it: the very biblical concepts of stewardship and working “as for the Lord” (Colossians 3:23).

It’s so easy in the digital-age of distraction to forget the sacred trust of time that we’ve been given. In midst of “important” emails, social media notifications, and activity-packed schedules, we miss the important because we’re too preoccupied with the urgent. I’ll be the first to admit that I have sometimes gone weeks and then wondered why I haven’t made progress on the stuff that really matters to me. When that happens I know I haven’t been disciplined in my approach to managing the many things that demand and deserve my attention.

It’s possible to be very busy, but still procrastinate and put off the most important things. This naturally leads to anxiety, restlessness, and stress even though it might seem like you’re working on hard on the surface. This is where a disciplined system can be a huge help. It can help remove some of the friction of starting and finishing those tasks and projects that we just don’t want do, by providing clarity on exactly what we need to do next.
