The best thing I've read on priorities

Merlin Mann:

I'll figure this out tomorrow. Or Monday. Or later. Tonight is Daddy-Daughter Night. And, no fucking way am I missing two in a row.

This has got to be the most inspiring thing I've read in a long time. It's exquisitely long. Almost too long, but not quite. Which makes it ideal. It's about something I'm sure many of us struggle with every day:

Perspective.

Sometimes things seem more important than they really are, but they're not. Sometimes we invest our time in said things that seem important, but we shouldn't. Deep down we know, but often we choose to do the wrong thing. Maybe it's out of habit or just plain fear. We should never fall prey to our habits and we should never give in to fear. The best things in my life have happened when I've pushed through fear and done something different.

Please go read Merlin's rant. It's worth your time.
