So Much to Do

I don’t believe I have ever gotten every thing done in a day that I planned on. There is always some things left on my “to do” list that I didn’t get done. The trick is not to get upset about what didn’t get done, but yet not to lose the desire and passion to get it all done. Because my plans on any given day are detailed and full it causes me to push and hurry all day long, but inevitably there will be an unexpected interruption, usually by a person, and I want to be flexible and sensitive to God’s agenda for my life, and be loving to people. So I have to work at being patient and relax in spite of the unexpected delay, that if I let it, will make me very agitated. Once the interruption is past I need to shift it back into 4th gear, pushing to get everything done, but knowing in the back of my head that it won’t happen now, and not letting that admission of not making the goal of my “to do” list lull me into complacency. Occasionally I just chuck the “to do” list and take a nap, watch a football game, read a Louie LaMour western, or go fishing. My goal is to be full of passion and drive to bear as much fruit as possible with my life in the time I have left, and also to enjoy life and to have fun. As long as I maintain the balance between the two, I can do both, which is a great way to live.

    Thanks Dee! Hearing that admission is a blessing. 🙂

    Thank you for the ways you use goals to fuel your priorities without them becoming the priority.

    Enjoy a happy thanksgiving!
