Review: Tell Your Time by Amy Lynn Andrews

Do you want to manage your time better?  Do you have dreams and hopes that keep getting put aside because you ‘just don’t have the time’?  Maybe you need to learn how to manage your time.

In the past I read many of the time management books out there, one after the other.  Now I no longer read them, and I was wondering why the other day.  I think the answer is simple:  I’ve absorbed the lessons from all those books and two years ago Amy wrapped them up neatly for me in her ebook Tell Your Time.  Not that I manage my time perfectly, but I know how to do it even if I don’t always do it.

Tell Your Time is a short book (just perfect for someone who values her time) full of practical wisdom.  Simple, clear, and to the point, it deals with both the philosophical and practical reasons we have issues with time management and shows how to solve them.  If you follow Amy’s advice, you will change your life. 

Tell Your Time would go very well with Crystal’s 21 Days to a More Disciplined Life, which I reviewed hereAmy gives you time management wisdom and Crystal shows you how to discipline yourself to follow through.

This edition of Tell Your Time is even better than the one I reviewed two years ago .

    Annie Kate,

    Good time management is always a challenge. So much to do and so little time. I’m inspired by Jesus, who had SO much to do, yet was never hurried, impatient, or late. His best time management tip? Spending time with the Father and getting his marching orders each morning. “I do always those things that please him.” When we know what pleases God, we always get it done. Visiting from Be Not Weary and glad I did.

    I just got this book on the Kindle and look forward to reading it.

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. I am sort of expecting some appalled comments from people who love the Harry Potter series, but probably they’ll just decide I’m weird and ignore the whole post :-). I’m glad it was helpful.

    Re books, I used to read almost everything that came in the door but I haven’t lately. My 2 big girls are only 12 and 11 but I have talked about worldview on and on and on and so when we get a new author I’ll usually skim it and if it SEEMS Ok, I’ll let them read it and quiz them about romance issues, disrespect of adults, etc.

    One struggle for us is that our almost 9 and 8 year old sons much prefer graphic novels and I am allowing them to read graphic novels as they bone up on their reading fluency. That’s Ok and there are some fine graphic novels out there, but I think sometimes my big girls get lazy and read graphic novels instead of more challenging stuff. I’m still working on that.

    I frankly dislike many of the so called “classics” and will not assign them. Anything where the main character is really really really flawed puts out some red flags. Yes, there are flawed main characters but I want some redemption at the end or I’m not going to let the kids read it. I probably won’t read it all either.

    I believe a person can be a well rounded human being without reading a bunch of thoroughly depressing books :-).

    Yes, Lori, doing what pleases the Lord is the ultimate test for what we spend our time on. Sometimes that can be hard to remember in the rush of life, and Amy’s book will help you focus on what you really need to do in your life.

    Laraba, being ‘lazy’ in reading can be appropriate sometimes, but if a more challenging book is exciting then few readers can put it down. The trick is to find worthwhile books. I agree that a lot of ‘classics’ are garbage; a lot of them aren’t, but we need a guide to get through them safely. That’s one of the reasons we use Omnibus from Veritas Press. But there, too, you need to be cautious; some of the books they study are totally inappropriate for the age range, so we just avoid those.
