Setting your priorities

Knowing your priorities keeps you focused on adjusting and managing your time and energy. Yesterday, I chatted with my parents about how stressed I was becoming from balancing my academic studies, club activities, and business activities all at the same time. I realized that I was spreading my time and energy too thinly into too many areas. Even though I want to accomplish many amazing things, I can't because my biggest hurdle that I have to get through is graduating from university (again...). I had to finish school even if I hated it because that's the only way for me to meet the requirements for the permanent resident application here (its complicated...). As my mom said, "you just need to get through this hurdle" so that I can be free to do whatever I want afterwards. In an instant, my priorities became clear and all the other activities I did seemed less urgent or important. I had to focus on one or two areas at a time. Right now, I'm that has to be on school and Book Hook. On the side, I will continue PPL part time. That's the plan. How I wish I can finish school sooner!
