Rest-of-the-Year Plans

I was chatting with a friend today about the rest of the year. He told me everything he plans to do and asked about my plans through the new year. I shared this ordered list with him:

  • Spend quality time with family and friends for Christmas
  • Read an interesting book
  • Make progress on a work project

My list is noticeably shorter and simpler than his. Spending time with family and friends is my highest priority. I don’t want to commit to too many things or attempt to do much during this holiday season because I want to be present with them.
