Well, today was a successful failure! Huzzah!
I had narrowed my “to do” list to the six most important things to maximize my chance at success. (This did not include the math teaching I do with Boys #1 & #2, which I do every day. Or eating. You get the idea.)
It soon became obvious, however, that all six things were not going to be done. In fact, it became obvious that only one of them would. However, it was the most important of the things, and it was worth the time spent, even if items #2-6 have to wait until tomorrow.
And I suppose that’s all I’m very briefly blogging about tonight: Sometimes it’s OK if you only get one thing done. Just make sure that it’s the right thing.
(Addendum: While my wife is working on a project in the garage/wood shop, she tripped the circuit breaker. Being down here in the basement, I quickly flipped it back on. So I have now accomplished two things. Double Huzzah!)
