This week’s habit comes in the form of one word—prioritize.
As much as we think we can, as much as we desire to “have it all”. . .
We cannot do everything at once.
In order for us to be really focused, intentional, and effective, we must prioritize our focus.
Right now, ask yourself, what is REALLY important to you right now? What do you want to accomplish?
If you had to name your top three priorities, what would they be? Yes, you may have a “to-do” list a mile long, but what three things stand out as most pressing–even if it is for today or this morning? Concentrate on them and give yourself permission to ignore the other “pressing” things for now. Right now, your focus is on those things only.
And when you have completed them, determine your next three priorities.
This is the secret to avoiding overwhelm–breaking things down into baby steps and then taking them on one step at a time.
