466. Stop

I have a really fucking long list of things to day that could keep me from doing something I really love, things that are Very Important – from cleaning house to searching for customers.

But I don’t do them.

I do the other thing.

And I realize more and more that this is what I have to do in order to get time to do that other thing – which I love.

I can’t wait to clean out my to do-lists. I can’t even try to decide to delete items from them to make them smaller and spend time on that. I don’t want to pretend that there’ll ever be a period in my life when other people won’t – for good or bad reasons – stand in line to take chunk out of my (life) time. They will. It will happen.

So if I ever have to get more of this Love done … I have to become better at just stopping and doing it. Much better.

There’s a lot more nuance to it, but this is the heart of it.
