I have four hours to dedicate to one of these things.
-Finish off my latest list of chores. There will be another list tomorrow. I will see immediate results. Is my life just a pile of lists? What about my responsibilities? What about my dreams?
-Finish the book I've had sitting on my desk for three weeks. All of the other stuff will pile up. What's the point of finishing the list if I never relax and enjoy? Will I be letting someone else down by not getting my work done? Knowledge is more valuable than a washed car or returned purchase.
Every day presents the same opportunity. Should we do our goals before we do our duties?
