“If I’m not on fire, it’s not urgent.”
I mean it. And I repeat that to myself on a weekly basis. It is so easy to get wrapped up into a false sense of immediacy. Another set of words I school myself with frequently are,
“I will not be governed by the tyranny of immediacy.”
I’ve learned, over time, that even things that have the appearance of requiring that I drop everything and tend to them… mostly don’t. With my own priorities I like to pretend I’m a bakery and I tell each one of them to “take a number and sit down.” Ah – it’s a pleasure to have those days in which I can tend my many priorities in such an orderly fashion. And for those days when that protocol does not work? Just breathe!
