I woke up on September 11, 2008 worried. I had so many things to do that day - finish a spreadsheet for the Leadership Program, prepare for a demonstration, organize my upcoming appointments, answer about 100 emails, finish personal tasks. There was just so much to do!

And then we got a call - my fiancee's sister had gone into labor. I dropped everything and went to New York with my fiancee. I didn't get to do any of those things till the next day - and they didn't matter.

Simple lesson about priorities - often we give too much importance to things that are not important or urgent. If there was this one box where we could hide them for a while.....

    That was the day - (8 years ago )when all our priorities changed...
