So…like…NOW!  There’s an incredible amount of pressure to get things done, NOW!  “Reach your goals!” your conscious screams.  And there are hundreds of things to do NOW!  See the problem?  Hundreds of things + NOW = not exactly possible at the same time.  And all of the planned things that need to be done continue mounting up with the daily tasks, company in town, emergencies, and the list continues on.

So lets break this math problem down, first we have a word ALL (so inclusive and exact), and we have NOW (demanding little word).  ‘All’ does not have to be ‘now.’  If you step back and take a deep breath, you’ll realize some progress, even slow progress is better than none.  Lots of the time I can become overwhelmed with all of the things that need (all of it is not actually necessary, I have deemed ‘it’ as a need) to be done, that I run around for at least 30 minutes trying to figure out, which thing to attack first.

Prioritizing and differentiating between important and urgent (check out The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens by Sean Covey – yes, I read the teen one, there were pictures.  I’ll read the adult version one-day*) that’s a helpful tool.

And then there are the things that are extremely important to you, which you’ve allowed to sit on the back burner.  Holley Gerth gave me a swift loving push in the right direction in her book, ‘You’re Made for a God-sized Dream.’

“In several studies, older people were asked what they regretted most.  The answer?  Not what they did but what they didn’t do.”

Which led me back to…NOW what do I not want to regret…do that NOW.

    As an older and much wiser person…regret had been the enemy. Not now. We live in segments of the day…waking up “be thankful”, working “do what you can”…home “take chores in stride”, love-one “make-time”, rest “be more thankful”. Continue the encouragement, can’t wait for more.
