Re-Prioritizing

If you're watching, you'll notice that my goals for this week are all leftovers from last. A classic case of the amount being bitten off in relation to what can be chewed. I'll not say I didn't have time to meet my goals. I am very cynical when people say they don't have time, because there are only very few times when this is actually true. What really happened is that, in the time they could have done X they chose to do something else. So, I had time to revise and submit. I chose not to because I decided I would rather do other things.

What things? You ask. Nothing in particular. I spent an hour and a half at the library reading magazines. I read 300. I did many loads of laundry, caught up on dishes, went to a party, did some cooking, got a head start on my homework for Katherine's class, and spent some time watching movies.

None of these things were on my list, but I'm okay with that. I've got a whole new week ahead of me, and now more time since I've taken care of other necessary things. This is also the advantage of breaking down montly goals into weekly ones - stuff happens, you can rearrange the smaller parts and still accomplish what you wanted to for the month.

I'm with you on reprioritizing sometimes. It's great to have goals, but life happens and we need to pay attention to it. Besides, if you don't do the other things, there is nothing to write about.

Oj course, my goals just completely changed. But I think it's going to turn out to be a good thing.

Must have the clip of him being arrested in my head. Did anyone else notice that his cuffs aren't fastened, but he moves his hands behind me to make it look like he is? What a jerk.
