Priorities, man

Diana had a good post about setting priorities. It resonates with me because I'm constantly aware that we don't have a lot of time, so among the things we'd like to do, we have to pick winners and losers.

By default, I tend to prioritize Simon over a lot of other things, in large part out of obligation, but also because I like to spend time with him. Diana is the best mom ever, because not only does she spend time with him, but she plans a great deal of activities with him that obviously enrich his life and help with his development. Sometimes I worry that this prioritization will cause resentment, not toward Simon, but toward the situation of having a child.

Doing the things you want requires a certain truth: If you really want it, you'll do it. That's something that people say about losing weight all of the time, but I think it's true for most things. So what do I want to do more?

I think that covers it.
