We make time for what is important, and each of us is granted the same 24 hours a day. How we spend these precious moments, reveals what we value.
Where does your journal fall on your priority list?
No, your journal didn't slip me $20 because it is lonely. But, it is helpful to assess how we spend our time. We tend to add useful items to our to-do list and failure to intentionally remove others to ensure balance. Instead, the others atrophy due to neglect. The action-oriented posture evaluates commitments, makes the conscious decision, and removes herself from the promise.
