‘being micromanaged is demoralizing”

I read somewhere recently an idea that I thought would be useful to me since I find myself frequently getting overwhelmed with life. The article suggested putting your problems down on paper in a piechart format. This way you are able to actually see which problems are major ones and which ones in the grand scheme are just minor annoyances. If I do this and then put the minor ones in my First Things First agenda I bet that I can whittle that chart down to just the major things and life will not seem so unbalanced at times. Just a thought!

I am currently reading River of Doubt by Candice Millard for my September book club. After several attempts to get it started, I have finally gotten into it. The thing I enjoy about this book club (which I found through my church) is that I am reading books I would never have read before and am loving them! What a joy and for some reason it makes me feel grown up.
