Knowing the Direction of your day must consist of:
1) How much are you willing to get accomplished?
Before you get going for the day it is important to ask yourself this question because you will not get accomplished what you are not willing to put forth the EFFORT to accomplish. Each day has enough trouble of it's own so to start the day without first contemplating how much time and effort you want to spend on executing what is productive versus what is not.
2) When will you start your day?
The time that you begin your day are indicators of how effective your day will be. There are 86, 400 seconds in a day and not ONE of them should be wasted! What time you wake up determines how much time you have to be productive! It is that simple. So at the end of the day when you lay down and reflect over what you did/not get accomplished looking at WHEN you started can provide better direction.
3) What is it that you desire to accomplished?
A man without purpose is a man without direction. You can set before yourself a list of 101 things "To Do" and accomplish every one of them in a day and STILL feel as though your day was unproductive. This is perhaps because "what" you are seeking to accomplish is meaningless or holds little or no value to what you can set out to accomplish that holds PURPOSE.
A THOUGHT TO PONDER:
"For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it?"-Luke 14:28
