Tyranny of urgent 

Date night: 1

Tyranny of urgent: 0

Take that, take that, take that!

Charles Hummel says that there is a regular tension between things that are urgent and things that are important. It goes without saying that urgent wins more often than not.

We’ve been making a concerted effort to stick it to the tyranny of urgent. I look forward to date night every single week. Just ‘The Captain and Trish’, not ‘mom and dad’ or any other responsibilities that we have. Just the two of us and quite often very delicious food. Sometimes fancy. Sometimes home cooked. Sometimes $1 ice cream from IKEA.

These nights put everything into perspective and give us fuel for the rest of the week. Love that it falls right smack in the middle of the week too!

This right here? This relationship…it’s important…urgent can wait.

Oh yeah…sorry I didn’t capture The Captain in the pic, he gets enough pics. Look. At. That. Pizza.
