I have to admit, this year’s SOL challenge has not been as fruitful as the ones I have participated in previously. Allow me to reflect on why.
If I had made my Slices more of a priority, then I would not have posted almost always at the very end of the day.
If I had written my Slices earlier in the day, then I wouldn’t have felt so rushed.
If I had not felt so rushed, then I would have spent more time refining my writing.
If I had spent more time refining my writing, then I might have had more visitors comment on my Slices.
If I more people share their insight, then I usually want to take more care in pleasing my audience.
If I had tried to make my Slices a priority, then I might not have gotten to fulfill my other goal of morning quiet time in prayer during Lent.
If I had tried to make my Slices a priority, then I would have taken time away from the once-in-a-lifetime trip to NYC with my family celebrating graduation.
If I had tried to make my Slices a priority, then I definitely would’ve missed some precious sleep.
If had tried to make my Slices a priority, then I wouldn’t have gotten to read and comment on others. What fun that was!
If I had tried to make my Slices a priority, then I might have resented the process.
So…all that analysis to say…while I realize that there were many things I could’ve done differently to make this year’s challenge more impactful, I will let myself off the hook and hope that I can try to prioritize better next year.
