I have written before about time management. After failing hardcore for a couple of weeks at keeping my own simple time constraints, I have found something that I very much missed the first time around. Sometimes, we don’t have enough time in a day to be the kind of person we want to be because we don’t use our free time to help ourselves out. As exams come to a close and free time begins to pour in on us like the good manna of heaven, here are some fun, educational, soul-serving things I plan on doing in the near future. Join if you like!
- Listen to NPR.
- Keep up on some ed-reform blogs. Some good ones: Students for Education Reform; Eduwonk; Starting an Ed School
- Listen to some podcasts. I’m checking out Rob Bell and Timothy Keller.
- Do some reading. The list: Character Strengths and Virtues by Peterson and Seligman; Erasing Hell by Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle; The Divine Conspiracy by Dallas Willard; The Reason for God by Timothy Keller; Work Hard Be Nice by Jay Matthews; Whatever It Takes by Paul Tough; The Bee Eater by Richard Whitmore; and Class Warfare by Steven Brill.
Leave some educational entertainment in the comments and have a great weekend!
