There's always more
Friday, May 25, 2018
When speaking of "stuff to do," it seems there's always more.
Harvey Mackay told a story of working in the produce department of a grocery store and being challenged to increase rutabaga sales. Seems no one wanted to buy them. So, with careful selection and placement of what was on display, Harvey managed to get the unpopular veggies sold. Then the manager asked him to do the same with eggplant. The moral of the story - there's always another rutabaga.
Which is how I feel today. I can chip away at things. I can prioritize. I get some pleasure out of solving problems and completing chores. But really, I'd like to sit back and not have this stuff to worry about. It seems never to go away. Instead the things requiring some sort of attention grow overnight.
I'm sure my feelings are not unique. But, this is how today feels. Lovely outside. A crime to be trapped inside with "stuff" to do. My cut at today: schedule a visit to the outdoors, and maybe BBQ dinner. That much I can do, and celebrate the freedom time it represents.
