5 Things I Can Do When I Don’t Want to Work
Four. Plan ahead. I oversee three areas at my church: children, small groups, and women. When I am feeling low energy I can brainstorm, organize, and dream about what will happen in these three areas in the coming week, month, quarter, and/or year.

- Children’s Ministry: Design a CM poster and have a training class.
- Small groups ministry: Recruit new leaders and make an informational video.
- Women’s Ministry: Get ideas as to what woman want/need from the church through a survey.
Five: Get Active. Sitting and doing work can lead me to the drowsies. So I can get up and move it while I . . .
- Clean up my office. I always have piles of recently finished projects that need to be sorted or put away.
- Reorganize one of two storage closets in the Children’s Ministry Wing. It is time to purge, consolidate, and let the teachers know what supplies are available to them.
- Plan and put up a bulletin board in the hallway of Children’s Ministry.
Bonus: Listening to this Madagascar video (I Like to Move It), always gets me m-oooo-ving.
