What’s Your Top 10?

Are you a wannabe? I am. I wannabe fluent in Spanish. I wannabe a good golfer. I wannabe 10 pounds lighter. I wanna memorize scripture. I wannabe a better artist. I remember telling a Jewish professor I wanted to learn biblical Hebrew. She answered: “A lot of people want to know Hebrew.” I got the message. Learning another language, losing weight, memorizing anything, driving golf balls, painting in oils, all take time and lots of practice. Life is full of interesting challenges. My problem is prioritizing my challenges. I have too many wannas. Do you have this problem? The writing on my tombstone could read, “She ran out of time.” Some years ago now I wrote down everything I considered important to me. Just took out a piece of paper and started writing. Then I prioritized what I had listed according to importance and figured out how much time I spent on the top 10. It’s an eye-opening process. I think it’s time to do it again.
