It's a Matter of Time

I've come to understand that the quality of any thing you do is directly proportional to the time you invest into it. This blog is a prime example. When I have time to collect my thoughts and mull over all the interesting things around me, the quality of the entries are much better.
When you're pressed for time you have a tendency to "settle". So it comes down to figuring out what's important in your life and scheduling the less important things around the important things. That's not always easy to do because a lot of unimportant things are noisy....they DEMAND your attention. The car that has a slow leak in a radiator hose is much quieter. It will start with a warning light that comes on to tell you the fluid is low. You fill it up but you don't fix the leak. No problem.....until one day when you're in a hurry and 50 miles from home, the hose bursts and the leak is a torrent and the car has to be towed.
It's kind of like your health. You get out of the habit of're too busy to walk. The weight starts to creep up on you and before you know it, you huff and puff like the big bad wolf when you walk up a flight of stairs.
I consider exercise one of the most important things in my life. I try to exercise daily. Writing is also important. I've written each day without fail for over seven months. Some days the entries were thin...sometimes they were off the mark, but sometimes...especially when I invest the time, I feel like what I write means something.
I advise you to find out what's important in your life and make sure you invest the time to do it and do it right. I think you'll be glad you did.
