So, how do you prioritize?

Yes. Time is not enough to learn everything. The problem is not that we don’t have enough time. The problem is, you want to learn everything.

It’s like saying, I am hungry, but there are so many fish to catch in the sea. You can’t possibly catch them all. You must not catch them all. Even if you could catch them all, it will imbalance the ecosystem. It would be best if you caught what you can and need to eat when you need it.

Similarly, you don’t need to learn everything. Learning is a journey. It takes you from point A to point B. You only need to learn where you want to go.

Learning propels us forward.

Learning motivates us.

Learning invokes action.

God’s gift to us: potential. Our gift to God: developing it.

Learning everything without taking any action is futile. It’s like taking up space for no purpose, taking the trip through life but never paying the fare, to return no interest for god’s investment in you.

I cannot stand that idea. Can you?

You must introspect and ask yourself the following questions; they are meant to prompt you to know yourself and help you chart your course to do what you were put on this earth.

Who are you? Where are you? Where do you want to go? What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses? Then choose what you need to learn to get there.

Most of the Accomplishments I’ve achieved in life I began to attempt before I was really ready. Nobody ever got ready by waiting. You only get ready by starting.
