"Always do the important before the urgent."
A few weeks ago I was feeling so discouraged with what I was not able to accomplish in my days.
I was feeling so dissatisfied with how many important things were being left in order to accomplish the urgent.
What do I classify as urgent?
Baking Bread (what will we have for lunch without it?)
The Phone Ringing
My Own Unrealistic Expectations
What do I think of as important?
Teaching little girls to read.
Reading stories to children.
Phoning a friend to encourage her.
Painting a picture.
Listening to my teens.
Sitting on my Hubby's lap.
Watching a sunrise.
I know that sometimes the urgent thing is the most important thing for a moment... but not for every moment.
So I am asking myself throughout my days,
"What is the most important thing for me to do right now?"
In spite of what is urgent.
