Earlier this evening I shared this photo on Instagram.
We may have left the kitchen a mess but I got a home-cooked meal in the family before the soccer game!
We’ll clean later. #wycwyc #priorities
We already ate out once this week so I really wanted to cook dinner before we headed to the 8-year-old’s soccer game tonight. I also wanted to get my #2014RunStreak run. Plus I had to hit the bank and drop off some papers at the school.
My priorities: run, dinner, bank, errand, soccer game.
I was able to schedule all those priorities this evening but, as with everything in life, something had to give. Today that something was cleaning.
A few years ago someone asked how I stay organized because I appear to have it all together. My response was a long winded confession that may be one of the first times I articulated #wycwyc — click here read How I Stay “Organized” HA!
Four years later I would answer that question the same way, but I found this quote that sums up my thoughts pretty well.
The key is not to prioritize what’s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities. — Stephen Covey
At the end of the day you have to decide what’s important to you and schedule it.
