I am a HUGE fan of figuring out priorities.
When you know what is most important to you it is easier to focus your time and actually accomplish what you set out to achieve. We live in a very fast moving world and there is so much noise vying for our attention. It is easy to get distracted. For time to go by. For goals to not be met.
When everything seems important, nothing gets done - or at least not well.
I recently read a post from A Life Less Bullshit called "What is your Actual #1 Priority?" and she nails it. I often coach people to think about their priorities, but it is easy to get off course. And reading this piece has helped me to refocus.
We live in a world FOMO and we want to say yes to all the things, but sometimes that doesn't make us more awesome. Sometimes it just dilutes us.
In my life my health often floats to the top of my list. Sleep is one of the most important things for me to keep on track with this goal. Which means being in bed by 10pm. Which means I can't do a lot of the things I would like to do.
But, I know I am better on more sleep.
Because I think better. Because I have more patience. Because my skin looks better. Because I am able to make decisions more efficiently. Because I wake up WAY more awesome. And we like awesome.
What can you say no to?
