What’s Best Next: How the Gospel Transforms the Way You Get Things Done is a God-centered, gospel-oriented perspective that addresses the proper motivation to drive your productivity — seeking the good of others and the glory of God. This motivation is the path to finding the greatest possible meaning in your work and, paradoxically, is also the path to greatest effectiveness.
What’s Best Next first shows us how to understand our productivity, work, and the things we do every day in relation to God’s purposes, and then gives a practical approach for improving our productivity in all areas of life. This approach integrates its own unique insights together with the best thinking from resources like David Allen’s Getting Things Done and Stephen Covey’s The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, on a gospel-centered foundation.

Here’s what a few readers had to say about the book:
“This book has such fruit-bearing potential I wish I’d started a blog years ago for the sole purpose of recommending it today. If you struggle to manage the number of things on your plate and want to serve people more effectively with the time that you have, you need to embrace and apply the principles in this book.”
“Wow! This book is amazing! I have been reading a lot of leadership/ productivity books this past year and this one was by far the most useful and gospel centered.”
“The table of contents made me want to stay up all night.”
“This is a timely, biblically grounded, disciple-equipping book that excels above the secular field that has dominated much of the business practice and personal development market.”
