Yesterday I shared my quandary about spending time with my son Lance when I have so much other stuff to do. I cited the first epiphany – that we will never have enough time.
The second epiphany is that I choose where to invest my time.
If I cannot do everything, then some things are going to be left undone. Which ones? That’s my choice. I find that liberating!
Choosing doesn’t mean I can just ignore whatever I want or do only what I like to do. It means that I have power over my life and the things that I do (or do not do).
That power means that I can evaluate all of those tasks and I can choose which ones are the most critical and how much of my time I will invest.
Is that kayak rolling session with Lance more important than prepping for next week’s trainings? That’s a tough call. Is the session more important than installing an irrigation system for my raised beds? That’s a no brainer.
Considering that laundry list of to-dos, I get to choose which ones will get done, and that is liberating.
But what criteria do I use for choosing? That’s epiphany three.
Do good and be well,
