“Divide your time up into Three different categories of Sleep, Work, and Play so that your faith flows between all aspects of your life completely.” ~ Jon Barnes
Eight hours of each category per day are ideal, yet 75% for each category is a good realistic goal. Sleep that makes you happy when you wake up helps to heal and repair damaged tissue, cells, and organs so that you can operate well into the day. Work that makes you happy and smile will allow you to enjoy life a long time. Making time to play, laugh, and smile while you help people will help build up your immune system and fight off illness.
Your body chemicals will regulate all of your major organs properly when you maintain a balanced schedule and proper percentages of activities to minimize fatigue and permanent damage. Exercising and choosing the proper, jobs, functions and activities are not always easy or available. Your job is to make efficient choices to minimize risk and maximize ROI, return of your investment of time, education, resources, and proper lifestyle with your family, friends, and employment.
Productivity increases when you are the owner, buyer, seller, and repair person in your shop. As your business grows you can hire help to train and give back to your community. Productivity based on deception, greed, and evil business practices are really counterproductive and harmful to your life, health, and Soul. God will judge our productivity, quality, and honesty of work ethic and our lifestyle will show proof and evidence of our True Success in God, which money can not measure.
Are you letting greed, lust, and laziness balance your time, resulting in poor performance, production, and lifestyle quality or will you let God help you improve the fruits of your productivity?

Doing Good for the Sake of the Gospel
2 You, however, must teach what is appropriate to sound doctrine.2 Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love, and in endurance.
3 Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good.4 Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children,5 to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
6 Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled.7 In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness8, and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.
9 Teach slaves to be subject to their masters in everything, to try to please them, not to talk back to them,10 and not to steal from them, but to show that they can be fully trusted so that in every way they will make the teaching about God our Savior attractive.
11 For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people.12 It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in this present age,13 while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ,14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.
15 These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you.
