How to be Prayerful and Productive
how is prayer similar to productivity?
I'll be sharing 12 components that I think both exemplify quite well. Here are the first three:
- Repetition: just as the monks, prayer is so repetitious that it can become tedious. A key is to keep it fresh through small calibrations and adjustments.
- The hope needed to start again: sure, you can beat yourself up if you miss a day of prayer but it's much better to dig deep into your well of hopefulness and start again. Hope becomes very active in this way.
- Simplicity: talk to God/listen to God. That's the essence of prayer.
How can you be more prayerful today? How can this spill over into your productivity?
