is far greater

Kodos 7:30

Good morning, everyone, and good luck today. 

Small goals today--show up at work on time, structure my day to include some e-mail replies and follow my schedule as best I can. Thank you St. Joseph. 

Kodos--12:40 check-in

Well, not bad so far. I've followed my schedule. But now, I have 50 minutes free. In theory, this should be enough time to get my e-mail box to nearly zero. In practice, I am really resisting this because there are some messages I haven't answered for MONTHS, and I feel so, so guilty. So, i'll give myself ten minutes to read some inspiration here, and try to just grit my teeth and get to the bottom of the box. 

I'll update at 1:30. 

Kodos --1:15

Just got called to a mtg, so I didn't finish, but I did start, which is the important thing, right?

Kodos--7:00 check-in

Okay. Not terribly productive after 3:00, BUT for the rest of the night, i'm going to follow a mini-version of my afternoon schedule.

start being grateful for what you have right now." Oprah W.
