Congrats gals! Shoot an email to my assistant Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org telling her what you won and giving her your contact info.
You know the kind.
Almost a half-dozen phone calls to make.
Two errands to run.
Laundry calling my name.
No dinner planned yet.
A few friends’ prayer requests laying heavy on my heart.
I need to tackle some mail.
I need to take my phone into the cell phone store since it is acting up AGAIN!!!!! Ugh!
I need to be in two places at one time tonight–speaking at my church’s Mugs & Muffins ladies night out and picking my son up from weight-lifting.
(Time to call the neighbor to request shuttle service for the man-cub).
I need to consult my freezer for something to thaw and cook.
You get the picture. I’ll bet it is often your snapshot too!
On one of “those days”, I remember the words I read as a young mom from the pen of one of my favorite authors.
DO THE NEXT THING.
However, over the years, I’ve had to tweak that saying just a bit. Too easy to get distracted and make my “next thing” some time-wasting trivial pursuit.
Or a wrong thing like wasting time worrying.
Or day dreaming.
Or doing a task that really doesn’t need to be done right now just to feel productive when in reality it is a way of procrastinating.
So instead of just doing the next thing, I will do the next “right thing.”
(I heard this friend once encourage her audience to do just that. Then, soon after, I spotted it on a t-shirt. I get the message God. ;-))
So, that is where I am headed now. To my “next right thing.”
How about you?
