Life presents limitless choices, so many we can become paralyzed, unable to move forward. Sources suggest we make a staggering 35,000 choices each day. Theoretically, we can achieve anything we make up our minds to accomplish. But making a choice means we deny ourselves hundreds of alternatives. Performing the task requires time, and time is the limiting constraint.
Daily, you will need to eat, sleep, and perhaps commute to your employer for eight hours of work. Those activities will consume two-thirds of your day. Your free time, the remaining eight hours you can play a game, watch tv, go for a walk, or write your novel. Priorities set in your discretionary hours are the ones that may define your life.
These precious hours I manage and control, optimizing each second. I limit and constrict my other obligations, so I can push more time into doing the things I love. Writing, reading, expanding my mind, spending time with family, they are the non-negotiables in my life.
How do you manage your priorities?
Keep on writing.
