Stop Honoring Everyone Else’s Priorities!

Daily ReadStop Honoring Everyone Else’s Priorities!

The real reason entrepreneurs feel time-strapped is simple: They honor everyone else’s priorities. Considering the fact that you hold the ability to makes decisions about how you shape the course of your life and business, it’s important that you set the right priorities. To help you avoid stress (and guilt) adopt a priorities-based decision-making process. Here’s how:

  1. 1.       Set up your priorities filter. Honestly lay out what matters most to you. From most important to least important. Your priorities may look something like this:

Inner life → Relationships → Business → Wellness → Order → Leisure or

Wellness → Start-up → Enjoyment → Relationships → Community service

  1. 2.       Make your priorities action-based. Once you have an idea of what’s most important to you, translate those priorities into actions. (An action associated with Wellness may be working out 5 days a week).
  2. 3.       Run all decisions through the filter. Most time-investment will become automatic (such as a daily workout) but when you face a decision about adding or changing something in your schedule run it through your priorities filter in order to decide yes or no.

These three simple rules, you can quickly and confidently know that you’re making the right decisions for you and your business based on your priorities and not everyone else’s!
