Thanks Larry. That took me back to memories of when I first got sober. I put one of those "First Things First" bumper stickers on the dash of my car, and put them all over my apartment, and made post it notes with "First Things First" on them -- so that I'd constantly be seeing "First Things First."
I was under so much pressure and in so much fog -- that to think about anything other than "what's important RIGHT NOW" would throw me into a spin.
I still use it today! However, I got a little better, so now I don't have to have the bumper sticker sticking on the dash of my car!
But, I still have it posted places and I rely on it. Sometimes, when I'm doodling w/ a paper & pen, I look down and discover I've been doodling "First Things First!"
