I was cleaning out some post-it notes today, and found some notes I had made way back in August 21 while I was prototyping a paper version of 123gtd.com. The notes were a handful of verses that I was using to decide whether I should make it a private time-tracking app or a public time-tracking app.
Importance of time-tracking
- Ephesians 5:15-16, Colossians 4:5 - Redeem the time
- Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 There is a time appointed for everything.
- Psalms 90:12 - We should number our days, so we can apply unto our hearts wisdom
- Proverbs 27:23 - You should know the state of your herds; basically, it's good to have an inventory on what's going on.
Importance of making it public
Should time-tracking be public or private?
- Luke 16:2 - Eventually, those who entrust us with responsibilities will want to know how we managed our time
- Luke 12:2, Ecclesiastes 12:14 - Everything we do in secret will eventually be made public
There are probably several other principles that I could find if I looked up the cross-references in those verses. But suffice it to say, that the Bible says there is a time for everyhting, we should be intentional with our time, we should keep a record of our time, and not be afraid to keep such a record in a way that others can review it, since everything will be reviewed by God.
