This week’s challenge is to list the things you prioritize before doing what really makes you happy.
My parents (especially my dad) always taught me to work first, play later. Oh, we still played a lot, but the sooner you got the work done, the sooner you could play.
I still following that.
If there’s something fun I want to do, I get my work done first so I can fully enjoy the fun stuff.
When it comes to daily priorities, though, I love, love, love what I do for a living, so writing isn’t work for me – it’s the fun stuff. So, I try to get all the “work” things I have to do completed, then the rest of my day is free to enjoy doing what I love.
What about you? Are you work first or play first kind of person?
