Life is not an emergency. Not everything
is top priority or has to be done right now. If we rush
all the time we are going to rush right through our lives,
and then what? Are we really in that much of a hurry to
get to the end?
Slow down! Take time and enjoy life. Take
some time to manage your life or your life will manage you.
Figure out what your top three or four priorities are each
day. Put those on your A list and work on achieving those
things. Everything else can go on the B list. Which means
if you can get to them you will, if not, then you won't.
After awhile, you might find that the B list contains things
that can be delegated or dumped.
You can only do what you can do. Stop overloading
yourself trying to be a superhero(ine). You are human. Therefore,
you cannot jump over tall buildings or stop speeding bullets.
There is only so much one person can do in a day. Schedule
your day to fit in the most important tasks. Everything
else will have to fit in around what is most important or
Are you treating your life like an emergency?

from the earth, a forgetting of the breath. Stress is an
