Your projects or your life...

I've been working with an east bay Realtor, organizing and filing masses of paper that got tossed into boxes during a recent move.  Needless to say, most of the stuff in the boxes was pitched when she really got to look at it.  She's amazed at how much useless paper had accumulated.

Of the paper that is left, a great deal of it is projects.  The business cards to scan into the computer" project, the "read over the notes from a class she took 2 years ago" project, the "create a new brochure" project, the "photo album" project, etc., etc.

When I asked her if she realized she was trading the last moments of her life for these projects, she was a bit stunned.  But in fact, that's the truth.  Every time you add a project to your list, you are choosing what you will do with the precious hours of your life. Projects are a necessary part of both our work and personal lives, however, some of us take on more projects than we have lifetimes to complete. 

Remember the bumper sticker "I'd rather be sailing"?  Well, I always use that question to measure against any project I start to think about taking on...
