Meaning First, Obligations Second

Its Sunday. I have a boat load of grading, class prep, and assorted service tasks to do. Yet, I am writing first, and doing some work on my new edited book (author invitations, structuring foundational chapters, looking for new authors, ect).

Why?

When you start with the work that makes your life feel meaningful, you tend to feel less resentful about the more mundane, ho hum, or even odious tasks. Also, service tasks tend to take as long as we give to them, so doing them when I have limited time makes me push through them more quickly.

Consider the implications of this for your work today.
