Prioritize

Lately I seem to be spending less time working on my writing and more time reading Facebook posts. In my mind I'm not giving up on my dreams but I'm definitely not working towards them very quickly. Ian S. Ardern said, "With the demands made of us, we must learn to prioritize our choices to match our goals or risk being exposed to the winds of procrastination and being blown from one time-wasting activity to another." "Prioritize our choices." I love that. There was once a time when I would get the baby down for his nap, read an article in the Ensign, and then focus on my manuscript until the baby woke up. Now I'm wasting time on social networking, folding laundry, or taking a nap myself. Sometimes I need the nap but the laundry and social networking can wait. I'd really like to become focused again. How do you prioritize your choices? How do you teach your children this concept?

  2. I try to set goals and remind myself of them whenever I have a bit of time that's not allocated. And I teach my children though nagging... or at least, if they tell me they didn't have time to do something I remind them how often I saw them in front of a screen.
