more on big rocks

In October I shared some thoughts about creating the space in our lives for the big rocks first.  A great quote was shared with me yesterday that ties to this.  The quote is by Robert Heinlein.

In the absence of clearly defined goals we become strangely loyal to performing daily trivia until ultimately we become enslaved by it.

This is such a great reminder for me.  I choose to keep my goals present for myself, because daily trivia isn't what I am up to in this life. Making a difference is.
