Whether trying to be more effective in prayer, or in any other area of life, we do well to write up a longer “stop-doing list, as Jim Collins says in his best-seller book “Good To Great:” resting...

“Most of us lead busy but undisciplined lives. We have ever expanding “to-do” lists, trying to build momentum by doing, doing, doing – and doing more. And it rarely works. Those who build the good-to great companies however, made as much use of “stop doing” lists as the “to do” lists. They displayed a remarkable amount of discipline to unplug all forms of extraneous junk” 

Join me in the journey to writing a longer “Stop-doing list”… What do you need to put on yours?
