What is it about Sundays that makes you want to curl up with a book, a cup of coffee and do absolutely nothing? This morning, I woke up, made coffee, cooked up some sweet potatoes and seitan, turned on a documentary, and then proceeded to spend the next hour on the phone with a close friend. I wouldn’t call that “nothing”, but it feels like a different kind of productivity than a morning in the office. It is hard to know which situation is the most productive. Is it more important to relax and tick off life’s tasks? Or to plug away at a computer knocking items of your weekly to-do list? Is either that important?
As is my standard practice, whenever I come across one of life’s many big questions, I turn to Calvin and Hobbes. In this case, Watterson provides a witty and telling answer. When asked about his priorities and his procrastination, Calvin responds “God put me on this earth to accomplish a certain number of things. Right now I am so far behind that I will never die.”
Keep knocking items off that to-do list, whether its for work or for personal fulfillment. Either way, you are keeping yourself busy!
