Priorities - christiansquoting.org.uk

The moment you wake up each morning, all your wishes and hopes for the day rush at you like wild animals. And the first job each morning consists in shoving it all back; in listening to that other voice, taking that other point of view, letting that other, larger, stronger, quieter life coming flowing in. C.S. Lewis (1898-1963)

No one can maintain more than three priorities. If you have a job you care about, that's a priority. If you have a family, that's a priority. Which leaves one more. Maybe it's staying in shape, maybe it's volunteering at your church. Most people understand this intuitively. But they keep overcommiting themselves and overcomplicating their lives. So my advice is simple: figure out what your priorities are, and say "no" to everything else. --Elaine St. James
