A daily blog should have a “blog” every day. After eight days of blogging about change, two days of sharing about photo books and a quote about how to treat people, I don’t know what to do. I thought Facebook was time consuning. Blogging makes Facebook seem brainless. I spend much more time thinking about tomorrow’s blog than I ever did about my “status” or responding to other people’s comments about their lives.
This is just another example of why planning is so important in our lives. It isn’t that being flexible and willing to change directions is not important. Changing direction involves “going” in a direction.
Being ready for each day requires some preparation. If we don’t do some planning, our time will be consumed with day-to-day tasks and “fires.” Take some time each day to list some of the items that need to be done, but require devotion outside of normal tasks. After making the list, prioritize the items and block out time to complete them. Rather than being driven by our schedules and the demands placed on us, we need to learn to be in the driver’s seat and steer to our own destination.
Lewis Carroll said it best, “If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.”
