Thursday is my favorite day. I don’t make plans on Thursday evening. I missed out on drinks with coworkers last week. This week I’m pressed for time to write. I won’t have time to read, I’m not going to the gym, and I didn’t bring any work home.
Thursdays remind me of how critical it is to set time aside for the important things that so easily get deprioritized. How important it is to commit to those things in the same way you commit to going to work every day. Commit time to take care of yourself. Commit time to develop yourself. Commit time to nurture your important relationships.
Choose the things that are important to you and commit to the time it takes to do those important things. Treat it as sacred. You’ll be glad you did.
