Great points. Regarding #3: when a schedule involves others, it is respectful to honor it. I have had good friends and family members who thought nothing of arriving 10 minutes to an hour late for EVERY get together with me. I found it disrespectful that my time was not as important as theirs. Luckily, I usually had a book, a notebook and pen, or, a lively imagination to keep me company 🙂 One day, a my friend called me and said how sorry she was????? I asked why, and she replied for all the years of keeping me waiting. I asked why now, she said she had been on the receiving end of this for months with a new friend and was livid. We had a good laugh. Slow down, dress in clean clothes and respect your schedule. AND, let your own personal schedule have lots of free space! Thank you Waylon. I miss the Academy, I may repeat it next year!!

That hit me hard. Number 3, a schedule I respect. Never even thought to consider it with that perspective. My schedule reflects the people I choose to have in my life, so it is not completely of my making except that I choose to do things with and for my family and community. But now I put in the mix do I respect what the outcome is for choosing some things in a day over others. Interesting. Let’s hear more about that, please.
