Tips for Leading with Confidence

Dear LWML Leaders,

Welcome back to Tips for Leading with Confidence.

Time is a most precious resource. Each one of us have been given the same amount of time and you have chosen to use much of your time in serving as a leader in the LWML. We thank God for you! Time cannot be managed, but you can manage yourself!

Using God’s Gift of Time

Here are some tips to help you manage the time God has given you.

  • Be realistic with what you can accomplish in the time allotted. This will help you feel positive about your accomplishments.

  • Prioritize your day. Make a list of activities in order of most important to least important.

  • Focus first on the #1 task on your priority list as you begin your day. Life sometimes doesn’t go as planned and even if you don’t get everything on your list done, you will have accomplished all or part of an important task.

  • Include things you enjoy as well as tasks that must be dealt with.

  • Examine your daily routine to discover if you’re wasting time with a particular activity. For instance, are you checking social media more often than you feel you should?

  • Wise leaders know when to say no.

  • Wise leaders know when to set their tasks aside to listen or help someone in need.

More tips to help you manage God’s gift of time can be found in the LWML resource Time Management, Manage Yourself, not Your Time.

God's Blessings,
