Too Many Priorities
It has occurred to me over the last couple of days that I may have too many priorities for my leave year. I want to revise my novel and build up to running a marathon and travel and take guitar lessons and see movies and read books and substitute teach and write a daily blog and get in shape, and learn about my computer and, and, and . . .
Something has to give. And it seems that the specific priority I have to give up changes from day to day. Earlier this week I gave up time revising my novel so that I could go to the gym to jog/walk on the treadmill. Yesterday I gave up doing my new weight training workout so that I could go to the movies. I gave up guitar lessons a while ago (but I'm still going back to it, or so I believe.)
If everything is a priority, then nothing is a priority. I'll be spending the next couple of days trying to figure out how to streamline my priorities.
How does writing, running, reading, relaxing sound? Mmm, but I have to travel. Back to the drawing board . . .
