Denny Burk has a link to Time Online which gives the background behind these work habits that need to abandoned.
And yes, I recognise that for a pastor some of these are guidelines more that enforceable standards.

  1. Do Not Answer Calls from Unrecognized Numbers
  2. Do Not Email First Thing in the Morning or Last Thing at Night
  3. Do Not Agree to Meetings or Calls With No Clear Agenda or End Time
  4. Do Not Let People Ramble
  5. Do Not Check Email Constantly
  6. Do Not Over-Communicate With Low Profit, High Maintenance Customers
  7. Do Not Work More to Fix Being Too Busy
  8. Do Not Carry a Digital Leash 24/7
  9. Do Not Expect Work to Fill a Void That Non-Work Relationships and Activities Should
