I can compose a blog post or I can work on a new manuscript.
There's not enough time in the day to do it all.
For business people, customer service has become a high priority as they attempt to appease and please the paying customers. Losing business is part of life, and it's a desperate struggle to dig up new clients when few are willing to part with their money.
So I can't let work slide. At the same time, I can't give up on a compelling story idea that's tumbling around in my head, making a nuisance of itself until it gets written down.
Therefore, I will work on a manuscript when a few minutes appear.
It's all about making choices these days. Conserving scarce resources.
