The calendar is moving rapidly toward December 25 and people are going crazy trying to get everything done in time for Christmas. I watch them and ask myself "Why?" Beginning about December 10, people start asking "Are you ready for Christmas?" Does it matter? If I am not ready, will Christmas wait until I get ready? NO!~
Take a moment and take stock. Look at all the stuff you have to do in the next few days. Look at each thing you have to do. Ask yourself "What happens if this doesn't get done?" "Can this be done next week just as well?" If your answers indicate that not accomplishing this task will not totally ruin someone's Christmas, put it at the bottom of your list and do the important stuff. That way, when the last page falls off the calendar and Christmas is here, you will have done the stuff that had to be done and that you wanted to do and you have not exhausted yourself on things that didn't really matter that much.
Give yourself the gift of time this Christmas.
