My whole life, I have wanted to know everything, do everything, and try everything. I played 5 instruments in the high school band, in addition to doing drama club, debate team, golf, AP classes, choir, you name it. In college I took extra classes that I didn't need to graduate just because the topics sounded so interesting to me. I'm on several mailing lists that range in topics - Parenting to FreeCycle to Spirituality to Cooking to HealthyWomen etc. etc. because I can't stand missing the info in them.
There are so many things I feel I really want to and must do. I want to get my Masters. I want to become a really good runner. I want to practice yoga daily. I want to learn my second language like a native, I want to cook from scratch, make money, hike, have time for crafting, reading the newspaper etc.
Problem - I can't do it all, and I can't seem to get it through my own head. All the mailing lists pile up and it drives me crazy that I can't read them. I have a toddler and barely have time to shower let alone study a second language. I haven't worked out in 3 months!
Please teach me: In a world of endless choices, how do you choose what you include in your precious time?
How do you feel content and not feel like you were leaving the other things behind?
