Self-Management: Themes of self-management and prayer
The foundation of good leadership is the reality that a leader needs to manage or lead him or herself. How well one practices self-management often defines the extent to which one is able to lead a group or organization.
Healthy self-management produces a healthy balance between serving and receiving, and between ministry and life. Through the practices of setting priorities and developing vision, every day activities will not become burdensome, and long-term goals will be more easily reached. Self-discipline and self-control enable a leader to keep his or her feelings and emotions in check, instead of being ruled by them.
