Now that we are in the midst of the holiday season, we’re rushing around as we do every December, feeling stressed and wishing we had more time to get those cards out ... those presents wrapped ... and then there are the bills that still have to be paid, and the regular daily jobs we have to do.
Right? They never go away just because the holidays are here. Life still goes on.
But let's stop to think about what is important to accomplish on a daily basis, compared to what is urgent.
SET YOUR PRIORITIES
When you hear the word "priorities," do you cringe? Would you rather not think about your most important daily priorities because maybe this reminds you of projects you’ve been procrastinating on?
Why do we find ourselves so often neglecting our most important priorities?
For everyone, it’s something different, depending upon each personality and lifestyle.
So let's put first things first, whatever that may mean to you, in order of importance.
If we look at what we consider to be urgent, we need to ask ourselves:
Make two lists, one for the things that you feel are urgent , and one for those things that you feel are important.
You might discover that the things you’ve thought of as urgent are really not that urgent after all.
Only you will know the answer, and you probably will end up learning a lot about yourself in the process.
