Five (A Five Minute Friday Post)

Standard

tally_marks-five-bar_gate-svgWork, sleep, family, fitness, and friends.

Pick three.

Randy Zuckerburg’s famous tweet regarding the entrepreneur’s dilemma has been swirling my head like a ring of little blue birds.

Fitness got kicked to the curb some time ago.

But my mentor tells me that, “without being fit you’ll never have the energy to keep going.” So… maybe I need to rethink my choice.

Certainly can’t give up my family time.

Friends have carried me on their shoulders to the place where I am today.

Sleep… well… I’m sort of in love with sleep.

The result?

My plan?

I have no plan.

I have lists. Lots and lots of lists.

I have priorities. Writing will take precedence over washing dishes. If my filthy house offends you, please stay away until my success reaches the point where I can afford a maid. In fact, maybe you should stay away after that time, too. We clearly don’t have much in common.

I have values. My crying child gets my attention. Business can wait. Even the supposedly urgent stuff.

Most of all, I have a vision.

Not just a dream. Not a hope, or a wish, or even a goal.

I have a God-given vision and… you know… maybe, since I’m obviously just a limited, finite, flawed little creature, God will carry me forward to see it through as long as I don’t look away from where I’m going.

  1. I like your list of 5 and I like your 5 things and also your prioritizing of them. They are all important, but sometimes seem overwhelming. But the truth is that God will carry us forward. We just need to keep our eyes on him and stay on the path. Blessings to you! I’m your neighbor at #FiveMinuteFriday.

  2. “If my filthy house offends you, please stay away until my success reaches the point where I can afford a maid.” This made me laugh out loud. So true! Priorities are where it’s at and having zero dust bunnies 100% of the time is just never gonna do it for me.
