Incredibly, we are already halfway through the year! I’ve heard time and life slow down the older or more mature we become, but I’ve found the opposite to be true. I have definitely slowed down, but time seems to be stuck in fast forward! There simply isn’t enough time to complete tasks in a timely, efficient manner. When I complete a task, 10 more appear to take its place. Most tasks are valuable, but if we do not discern what is vital, important or necessary, we become slaves to the loudest voices. Kawaiaha̒o’s stewardship of time and resources must be determined by our choices.
