I’ve been thinking a lot about my priorities the last many months. There is only so many hours in the day and I only have so much energy to use in them.
It seems the priorities that are pulling me in all of their directions always need more time and more energy than I have. And so things get dropped. Things don’t happen. Some things only get a cursory once over and fix before I have to move on. Not everything in life is at the same level of priority.
I’ve been using the term “minimalist” to describe how I feel about certain things. It is very easy to blow some priorities out of proportion and think they deserve, or need, more time and energy than they actually do. I’ll get the minimum done and then if it works out I can do more, I will.
I can’t feel guilty about my priorities. I am doing what I can. I am focusing my energies where I believe it will matter most in the big picture.
My moments are limited. I’m making the most of them that I can.
