I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the notion of things you “have” to have or that are worth working towards. In a lot of ways, life was simpler when my biggest concerns were packing lunches and getting some work done every day. On the other hand, there’s nothing like a good old-fashioned family crisis to make the difference between “important” and “totally not a big deal” crystal clear.
Thanks to the Olympics, I find myself wondering what it must be like to have single-minded determination to reach a specific goal. I can only wonder, of course, as I have lots of different goals. Like, today I’m thinking of cleaning off my desk. Hardly worth building a life around, it’s true, but it leaves me enough time and energy to procure and eat a snack while I’m doing it. Win/win!
Come read more in my post over at Feel More Better today—I’m using the Olympics as a springboard (get it??) to the whole “having it all” conundrum. I think there’s a sweet spot between having it all and having only one thing… I’m just not sure how to find it. Maybe it’s buried here on my desk.
