My friends and I talk rather frequently about how busy we are, like it's some badge of honor that we have that many things to do and places to go. Then we complain that we are tired and we need to slow down. So we all get on the crazy train and try to cut out activities, only to find out that we pile more into the schedule in place of the things we just erased. It all gets faster and faster until something brings the whole thing to a screeching halt, and nothing in that scenario is fun for anyone.
Somewhere (short term memory loss), I read that the original Greek word for priorities was singular. I think that's screaming at me loud and clear that I have got to readjust my definition of the word!
One eyeball, one view, one member in the audience. Evidently, I need to simplify more than the junk in my closets!
