“Let’s be honest; it’s rather easy to be busy. We all can think up a list of tasks that will overwhelm our schedules. Some might even think that their self-worth depends on the length of their to-do list. They flood the open spaces in their time with lists of meetings and minutia—even during times of stress and fatigue. Because they unnecessarily complicate their lives, they often feel increased frustration, diminished joy, and too little sense of meaning in their lives.”
-- Dieter F. Uchtdorf, “Of Things That Matter Most” (October General Conference, 2010)

Thanks, Dieter. I needed that reminder. (And thanks to the guy at Stake Conference who shared this quote today.) And thanks to all of you for reminding me to not bite off more than I can chew.
