    Do the stuff you love.
    Deal with the stuff you like.
    Delegate the rest.

      ~nod~ That’s what I TRY to do. But…I love to do so many things! I WANT to do so many things! Work just takes up too much time. lol

    I don’t think I’d even dare try and make such a list, although if I did some of it would look suprisingly similar to yours. There really just is never enough time for everything, certainly never enough to spend with people we love.

  3. I know the feeling… there are just not enough hours in a day, dammit!


  4. Molly says:

    OK… so you are me, or I am you? Not sure which but with a bit of tweeking here and there this is my list….plus add on about 100 more things! I am tempted to make my own list but I am also worried that I might just terrify myself into total inaction!


  5. piecesofjade says:

    Sounds like we all need about 8 more hours per day. Huh, maybe those hours we spend sleeping??

    And Molly–I keep thinking up new things that I should have included on the list! I am afraid to go back in and add them tho. Like you say, I’d paralyze myself. lol

  6. Nan says:

    I feel exhausted just reading the list and I try to have this kind of life, too. I find that it helps to just keep moving.

    Hope you get everything accomplished and most of all, enjoy it!
