Pastors: Stop Doing 80% of What You’re Doing!

If you’re a pastor, a lot of the things you’re spending time on each week may not be producing as much fruit (making disciples) as you think. But all of us get caught on a hamster wheel of things we’ve added to our list of responsibilities, or someone else has, that over time become a huge waste of our energy and resources.

This week on the Lifeschool Podcast, we talk about why most leaders should STOP doing 80% of what they’re currently doing. You are facing what may be the biggest opportunity you’ll ever have to reset your schedule as things get restarted.

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • Why the future of your church depends on you doing less.
  • How your physical time and capacity may not be as drained as your emotional capacity.
  • How to assess your true values and what gets you up in the morning (and why).
  • Practical ways to know what you should be putting on your “stop doing list”.

Get started here…

pastors stop doing what you're doing

From this episode:

We all have only so much physical time and capacity, but we also have a limited supply of emotional capacity to spend each day and week. If you’re maxed out on both time and emotional energy, you will hate your life, have very little to give your family, and will hide and/or die under a pile of exhaustion and never have time for making disciples in community in your everyday life.
