Today I'm having one of those days where I can't keep up with all the email arriving in my inbox. I KNOW others can relate, right? In a job that seems like there is always more to do than can reasonably be done, it can be challenging to figure out what to do first... or what to do at all.
I'm finding that one way I prioritize is to think about my written job description, and try to determine if any given task seems like it supports the goals the church had in mind when they decided to hire a Ministry Coordinator in the first place. (Embedded in that job description is the idea that my work supports the mission and vision of the church.)
What about you? What tips do you have for deciding what work is most important?
