Sometimes things get away from me.
I’d offer “I’ve been busy” and while true it’s…well, not exactly an excuse, more a demonstration of prioritizing – which I suggest people do in order to maintain clear thinking if not their sanity.
Sometimes I have so many priority lists on my desk I have to prioritize my priority lists.
Oh, but the sense of satisfaction when I do so and tasks begin falling away, a bright shiny check right beside them.
So I ask your indulgence.
Give me a moment to check this box.
