One of the things that contributes to stress the most is a lack of focus in our lives. When we’re pulled in a million different directions, how do we choose which way to go? Not having a clear set of priorities makes it impossible to choose. We end up feeling as if we have let someone down or worse yet… lost a piece of ourselves. Before we can live by our priorities we have to first DEFINE what they are. Here are some key questions to ask yourself:
- In five years, how would you like your life look different in a BETTER way? What will be better about your career, family life, relationships and financial situation?
- Which activities are you doing now that contribute THE MOST to where you want to be in the future? Which activities contribute THE LEAST?
- How will I invest my time differently moving forward to better align with my priorities? Do more of the things that are propelling you forward, and start to eliminate your time-wasters.
