Where is Your Treasure in Business ... and Life?

"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." - Matthew 6:21

These words of Jesus are absolutely true.

A modern-day translation might be: "For where your attention is, there your heart will be also."

In our business, what do we pay the most attention to each day and week?

If you track how you spend your time each day, in a small pocket notebook or online tool, as I used to, you will always be surprised ... and you probably won't like what you find.

You probably spend more time on email than talking to your spouse or child, for example.

More time watching TV than reading business books (or the Bible).

More time driving than exercising (or praying).

Note: I am the first to admit that I am guilty of all the above.

Good news: Admitting you have a problem is the first step to solving it. That, backed by prayer, Bible reading, and right action, can solve any problem.

Where is your treasure? Where should it be? How can you start setting your heart on it -- now?
