Prioritizing Importance

There is only so much we can accomplish in a day.

As long as we have used our time wisely and have not squandered it, we should not be hard on ourselves for tasks left undone.

If we have prioritized well, the things we were unable to get to were the least important anyway.

We should not fret about that which is unimportant.

There is not enough time in the day to give our energy to that which does not matter.
