On the advice of a friend, I recently read Essentialism by Greg McKeown. It’s a book on a common theme: getting more out of life, getting more out of less. The type of advice your average overscheduled, over busy, overly responsible person needs, and that certainly includes me.

One point made is to get enough sleep. Sleep allows us to function at our best. One point made is that we have to protect our ability to prioritize. And getting enough sleep is a big part of this.

Guess what I’ve been failing at in the worst possible way since reading the book?

I hope I have some other priorities in order. Some. Certainly not all. This is definitely a work in progress, and I hope I get better at it.
