Reagan’s Roundup (10/16)

Welcome to this week’s edition of Reagan’s Roundup!

Here are some links to fuel your journey toward being a more productive Christian.

Now, for what’s happening on the web:

Seize the Day’s Interruptions

“In the midst of our busyness, a friend in need texts, “Can you talk?” A church member asks for help to move a dresser. A coworker requests our feedback on a project. The driven among us find that such love disrupts our schedules, overturns our plans for the day, makes hash of our productivity, leaves our to-do lists half done. “Love your neighbor,” as it turns out, can feel like a frustratingly inconvenient command.”

How to choose the right note-taking app

“The note-taking tools market is projected to reach $1.35B by 2026. The good thing is: there is a note-taking app for everyone. The not-so-great thing: with a new note-taking app popping up every single week, it can be hard to decide which one is the best for your use case.”

New Planner from the Author of Deep Work

Cal Newport, the author of Deep Work, has created a new planner with a focus on time-blocking. The planner will be available November 10th, but they are now accepting pre-orders.

Keeping a Captain’s Log for Knowledge Work

I’ve done this a few times and can attest to the benefits. Have you ever kept a captain’s log of your day?

“Use a Captain’s Log when you want to: run a time audit, catch procrastination rabbit holes, break out of procrastination loops, get a ton done up against a deadline, rebuild awareness during your workday”

The Waters of Comparison

“As believers, we want to see Jesus glorified and we want to see His name magnified in our lives…but it’s so easy to believe He could be better glorified in our lives if He gave us the speaking ability of our Sunday School teacher, the energy of that one elder’s wife or the hospitality genius of our Bible Study hosts.”
