I’m still trying to get there

Sunday, for me, means preparing for the upcoming week. Sometimes it’s simply mentally preparing. Sometimes it’s listing out everything that needs to get done.

The thing is, I’ll never get everything done that needs to be done. I won’t get on top of my to-do list. It is always updating.

What I can do is choose to do the things that matter most. Work or personal… what is most important to me.

I make my lists with the goal of eliminating the unimportant.

My wife has a better understanding of what drains her of energy and time. I’m still learning.

I write in my journal to focus on what’s important. I don’t always succeed, but I’m trying.

Maybe someday, I’ll have my ability to focus fine-tuned enough that I won’t ever have to write a reminder.

Not today. Not tomorrow. But someday.
