Principle #2: On Time
If we don’t do things on time, we can miss important opportunities God has for us. If we do, we will be more efficient and work won’t pile up. This is really helpful in doing things to a high standard as well.
Doing things on time is pretty straight forward:
- Make a schedule and stick to it
- Check frost dates and optimal planting times for your garden (this is connected to doing things to a high standard, because plants grow healthy and beautiful in the right weather. This also helps with principle #3; stay tuned!)
- Don’t procrastinate! Ruminants need new grass promptly, weeds grow so fast, and chickens scratch dust bathing holes in the ground with incredible speed. If you do things on time, the ruminants will have fresh grass, the weeds will be controlled, and the chickens won’t scratch as many holes in the yard before you move them.
