“A third form of laziness is not having the determination to do immediately what you know to be the most important thing and wasting your time instead on minor activities. To remedy this, establish priorities among your projects, and remember that, while your days are numbered, ordinary activities are like waves on the ocean – there is no end to them.”
We do this. It’s more though. It’s more like a determination to NOT do what I know is the most important thing. I’m reminded of the idea that I don’t deserve to do what I want. That it is lazy. Why is it lazy? Because what is the most important for me, is usually not the most important for the system, or Troy, or even Nathan sometimes.
This week we have been trying to do what feels important, what feels right at the moment and letting the rest go. Sometimes reading IS more important than laundry. Sometimes just watching tv is better than cross-stitch.
Meditation pops into my head. Alex is good at mediation, the rest of us really find it hard. Really that feels like an excuse. I’m not sure we really put much effort into it. It’s something we definitely need to be doing, but aren’t.
