Instead of saying, “I don’t have time” try saying, “It’s not a priority” and see how that feels.
This is another quote that makes me wince and mutter, “ouch”. This month of focusing on priorities has been difficult to say the least. I’m not sure it has accomplished anything except making me realize how far I have to go in order to truly live by my priorities. I guess that recognizing our shortcomings is part of the process of improving.
One of the biggest take-always for me is that I can’t have it all. The idea that saying yes to one thing means saying no to something else. Even if all of my “yesses” are for a good reason or good cause, it still means that something else is a no. So thinking about today’s quote – who, or what, do I need to tell that it/they are just not a priority? Somehow that makes it a bit easier to decide between the yes and the no. Easier to decide – not easier to implement.
