Yesterday my daughter came over with some friends and we sat around the fire pit in our backyard talking and singing songs until 11:30pm.
It was amazing.
Now, I am not a night person. I usually get up at 5:30am and get most of my focused work done before noon.
So, getting to sleep at midnight can really mess up my daily plan and productivity.
But this morning (after getting up about two hours later than normal!) I wasn’t bothered by it in the least.
Because sticking to a strict schedule is not what I want my life to be about.
I want to know at the end of the day that I spent my time on the most important things in my life, not that I just got through my to-do list.
That's what priority living is all about.
But here's the thing.
A life like that can't be accomplished by winging it.
You have to have a strong foundation under your feet and a framework around your time that allows you the freedom of that kind of movement in your life.
It's about intentionally thinking through beforehand how you'll handle your time so you can have the flexibility to change up your schedule without everything falling apart.
Many spontaneous people refuse to adhere to an organized time management plan thinking it will stifle their freedom.
But the only way to have true flexibility without sacrificing priorities is to live on a foundation of order.
It will give you the security and peace of knowing that you’re in control of your time and your decisions.
It will give you the confidence of knowing you’ve spent your time well.
Your priorities are worth it.
