Unexpected detail

Those ocotillo are at the top of the cliff, WAY across the river. It never occurred to me I might catch bees on flowers at that distance. Amazing.

Commitment is the Glue that Binds

But, the component of personal commitment is my favorite lesson from GTD project planning. It means I’ve knowingly agreed to let this thing become an acceptable interruption in my life. It means that other things might have to wait because of this, and that’s okay. Maybe most importantly though, commitment is the glue that binds your daily activities to your “higher altitudes”—it’s how you can make sure your values and your priorities in life are reflected in what you do every day.
