First things first

Good morning.

Today's post is surprisingly short — famous last words!

I didn't have the best night's sleep: a trip to the little boy's room; being too hot — the duvet is too heavy for this time of year; and my mind, despite trying to count each breath, was like a whirling dervish. I did eventually settle but not before I'd lost about two hours sleep (I try not to look at my watch so I may be a bit out) to my disturbance.

But this title and (for me at least) all it connotes was what stuck.

Of course, if you've read Stephen R. Covey's book "7 Habits" you'll be familiar with the idea/concept but for everyone else, all I think it's really saying is to focus on the most important thing having, of course, worked out the direction of travel — the late Mr Covey liked to conjure up leaning ladders against putative walls from memory.

Right now, it seems that there are a lot of people with a lot of time on their hands. I'm guessing it's related to CV19, where across nearly all sectors people have either lost their job or have been furloughed (the latter is only from a UK perspective — other countries may have similar schemes).

And my question is simply this:

What's the best use of your time?
