Musts vs Shoulds

Ever had a battle between musts and shoulds?

I must get this done…I should get that done. That was this weekend.

Trust me – there are many things on my should list. Some could arguably be called musts.

However, I did a gut check and really, really concentrated on the musts.

Things like:

  • Spending time with friends
  • Reconnecting with one of the boy’s favorite college professors for breakfast. 
  • Not looking at the computer in the evening.

It’s funny how shoulds are often elevated to the detriment of musts. I’m learning that I need to be more discerning in how I spend my time.
