DSTSS - the In Basket

6.  Remind yourself that when you die, your "in basket" won't be empty

Well, that sucks..........obviously i am not going to live forever, so i better make the most of it.  And by making the most of it, i mean that i need to determine what is the stuff that really matters - is it spending time with my family, doing things i enjoy - things that make me a happier person, things that enhance my well being, or is it my paid work, my unpaid work - the stuff that i need to do in order to keep the in basket in surplus.

I think the former is the winner and honestly, i don't need to get every little thing done.  I think it ties in with the imperfection of chapter 2. 

I would like to get this gigantic task out of my in basket one day - and this is the goal we are working towards.  Getting the reno done and emptying this stuff that has been sitting gathering dust for the past 3 years. How's that for an "in basket"!
Note to self:  Don't let all the stuff in the in basket be more important then doing the things that really matter.  There is always going to be stuff to do - so choose wisely.
