Dear John,
Thank you so much for being such a brilliant example of what the power of Christ can do in us. I truly admire you for your clarity of mind and self-organisation. I am also grateful for the wonderful work that you're carrying out in my country of birth, Kenya. I look forward to contributing to it in the near future.
My purpose of writing to you is to comment on today's topic. While I agree that planning by committing 1% of the day to planning, I think it is prone to disturbance if done daily - it is more likely that something will scuttle the daily routine. What I've found to be much more effective is to commit two-hours per week, at the least, which comes just over 1%, to planning for that week. I sit down and put my whole week's schedule into Google Calendar (GC). GC has some very good features for those who use Google products: the ability to send reminders, not just by email, but also by SMS. I think that very few people are aware of these features. During the week, I make a list of all the pending things that arise and plan them into my diary so that at any one moment in time I am only thinking of what I should be doing. It gives me great peace when I know that every activity has been budgeted for and I can suspend thought on it until it's proper time arrives (Eccl.3:1).
Once again, I deeply appreciate your shining example. May God continue to richly bless you.
Your friend in Christ,
P. Korir
