During my week I feel constant temptations to shortcut, because I feel the constant pressures of time. Only so many hours in a day, and so many things to get done, and only so much time in the office, and the need to finish this masters sooner rather than later.
I need to remind myself that giving in to temporal pressures for the short term, equals long-term loss.
- When I neglect language study, I make all future study more difficult and less rich.
- When I neglect exercise, I shorten my life, detract from my health, and sabotage my work
- When I neglect the scriptures and prayer, I render everything futile
I feel like my thesis is going very slowly. But that might just be something I must come to terms with.
