Setting Perfect Priorities and Impossibility

I love the early morning hours. So many things I like to do. And now with the wonderful weather, it is even nicer. First thing in the morning, it is all about possibilities. Tonight when I go to bed, its about results.

I have been traveling this week so lots of catch up today. And I have neglected stuff around the house so have lost of mail to go through, bills to pay, den to organize etc. I know I will suffer today from "People always tend to overestimate what they can accomplish in a day". But I love the next part "People always tend to underestimate what they can accomplish in a year".

I have recently had to do some major juggling of my schedule. This causes guilt for the things I have to cancel (although I realize this sort of guilt serves no purpose). It is a problem of possibilities. I have just so many things I want to do and so many things I get invited to do.

Life really is about setting priorities. Not only at a big level but at the tiniest of level. I tend to be long term goal oriented so this helps me set some priorities. I am not sure there is a perfect way. Thinking if I figure that out, there would be a good book there. I did research it a bit and found lots of articles including those here, here, and here.

One reason I study time management is so I can do more things. It works well as long as I remember to schedule time for the things that build me up and make me stronger and therefore more productive.

I am grateful that I have so many things I want to do.

Perhaps cloning will advance.

Time management is critical, but more importantly wheather one is aiming for the right goals and working in the right directions.
