I was listening to the radio this morning as I do every morning and the morning show had Archbishop Timothy Dolan on as a guest. The Archbishop will be leaving Milwaukee after Easter to become the Archbishop of New York. The question that really struck me was: What would you have done differently in your time here in Milwaukee? The Archbishop thought for a moment stating that he had every intention of staying in Milwaukee for a long time, but things happen for a reason. In not quite these words, he stated that he wished he would not left so many things unfinished. Phone calls to be returned, letters and emails yet to be responded to, visits to the hospitals, nursing homes, etc.
We all have such long lists of things to accomplish. How do you put a priority on your tasks? What is the most important to you? Right now, I do try to put a priority on remaining healthy: exercising, making better food choices, etc. so that I can accomplish all the other things on my list.
What would I do differently? I would have started this journey long ago and made sure that everyone around me knew how important it is for all of us to practice healthy living.
