Who manages your life? Wally summarizes his thoughts about the differences between time management and energy management.
|Time management||Energy management|
|I own my time and must manage it well. Power in us.||God owns me and my time and I must always do His will. Power in Him.|
|I must make priorities and follow them.||I must submit to God and His purposes.|
|If I use my time well, I can accomplish a lot.||I recognize that I cannot do anything of myself.|
|By managing my time wisely, I can be successful. Rallying untapped human potential.||By heeding God’s counsel, I can bless His children. Accessing underused divine power.|
|I need to take charge of my schedule.||I need to submit my will to His.|
|I deserve a good life.||I am less than the dust of the earth and an unprofitable servant. All that I have, all that I am, and all that I hope for are gifts from God.|
|Organized priorities||Educated conscience: Asking God: What do I need to do?|
|Advance self and goals.||Advance God and His purposes.|
|Time management may give us a well-ordered life.||Submission to Jesus provides us cleansing, transformation, and eternal life.|
|Inventory. Prioritize. Organize.||Faith. Repentance. Obedience.|
|Patron saint: KorihorAnd many more such things did he say unto them, telling them that there could be no atonement made for the sins of men, but every man fared in this life according to the management of the creature; therefore every man prospered according to his genius, and that every man conquered according to his strength; and whatsoever a man did was no crime.||Patron saint:Joseph SmithTherefore, dearly beloved brethren, let us cheerfully do all things that lie in our power; and then may we stand still, with the utmost assurance, to see the salvation of God, and for his arm to be revealed. D&C 123:17|
|God: SatanAND I, the Lord God, spake unto Moses, saying: That Satan, whom thou hast commanded in the name of mine Only Begotten, is the same which was from the beginning, and he came before me, saying–Behold, here am I, send me, I will be thy son, and I will redeem all mankind, that one soul shall not be lost, and surely I will do it; wherefore give me thine honor. Moses 4:1||God: The Lord Jesus ChristBut, behold, my Beloved Son, which was my Beloved and Chosen from the beginning, said unto me–Father, thy will be done, and the glory be thine forever. Moses 4:2And Samuel said, Hath the LORD [as great] delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey [is] better than sacrifice, [and] to hearken than the fat of rams. 1 Samuel 15:22|
