How to Get Unstuck | Book Review


We all want to be more effective in life and ministry, but all of us also get stuck at some point or another. In How to Get Unstuck, Matt Perman offers a “God-centered, gospel-driven” perspective on productivity — defined holistically as “a flourishing life, not just doing better at work.” He sketches “successful practices” for getting unstuck, but those practices are built on the foundation of this insight: “operate from a center of sound principles. Use those principles to set your priorities. And then organize and execute your life around those priorities.” This is a helpful book for Christian leaders both inside and outside the church.

Energy Management


We often speak of time management, but as Wayne Cordeiro points out, time management is really energy management. Building on that insight, Dr. Jim Bradford asks the following two questions:

  1. What are my priorities?
  2. What are the things that only I can do?

Once you’ve answered these two questions, put your best energy into priorities and things only you can do. This is the way to “make the most of every opportunity” (Eph. 5:17)
