When we were in one of the shops on Jekyll Island, I found this great little sign and instantly knew I had a new motto.
He said (I tried to write it down exactly, but it's not perfect, so let's just move on...) "Choose the things you want to do and make sure they're essential". Then he said, "There isn't time to do everything. There's certainly not enough time to waste".
You know those moments where you hear something and you know you've heard truth, or wisdom, or just felt enlightened. Today, this was that moment for me. It's so easy to get caught up in doing the things we should do (or think we should do) and sometimes neglect the essential things.
So, while I think this still may be my new favorite motto, I'm going to make sure that the things I enjoy are the essential things.
