The Runaround Dilemma:
Because we don’t know what is really important to us, everything seems important. Because everything seems important, we have to do everything.
Other people, unfortunately, see us as doing everything, so they expect us to do everything.
Doing everything keeps us so busy we don’t have time to think about what is really important to us. —Anonymous

The Runaround Dilemma was what I used to avoid on a daily basis prior to my retirement. I worked diligently to figure out what my priorities, or more accurately my boss’s priorities, were.
Now retired, I own my time and priorities. No longer do I need to wreck my brain to figure out what’s important (to my boss). Instead, I go with the flow and let the important stuffs happen to me. Otherwise, must not be important enough.

How about you? What’s really important to you?
