In The Time It Takes To Write An Odyssey Article

Because, priorities.

In The Time It Takes To Write An Odyssey Article
Emily Spennato

In the time it takes you to write an Odyssey article, you could remember you have one due during your morning class and think, “I have no idea what to write.”

You could think about starting your "Dungeons and Dragons" character. You could do some online shopping and make yourself a cup of coffee.

In the time it takes you to write an Odyssey article, you could write a poem about how you’re over your ex-boyfriend. Basically, in the time it takes you to write an Odyssey article, you could get over someone. Or at least pretend you could. If you were, would you still be writing poetry?

You could realize that you are still writing poetry.

You could open up Facebook and reminisce on the time you learned cappuccino art in your semester abroad. You could take up cappuccino art in the time it takes to write an article.

In the time it takes you to write an Odyssey article, you could open your computer and find a spot on the couch by the window and not be sure how you are going to pull this off with quality and finesse. It’s lunch time by now. You can make tuna. You can come back and post on your blog before you even open this document back up.

But that’s life: all about figuring out what’s important and the order of importance.

Who are the important people? What are the important tasks? Which are the highest responsibilities? And we pay attention to them and put effort into them accordingly, in the order of which one matters most to us.

You are going to put the most time and energy into the things that bring your life and your heart the most contentment, excitement, stability and success. If you didn’t, what importance would priorities have?

That’s why it’s so important to choose our friends and people we surround ourselves with based on their priorities. It doesn’t necessarily have to be goal-oriented priorities or success priorities. Make sure the people in your life have emotional and relationship priorities. Choose people who invest in the people who matter most to them—it is important one of those people is themselves.

In the time it takes to write an Odyssey article, you can get discouraged, make lunch, post on your blog, go on Instagram, and prioritize.

Choose what chooses you.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
