Prioritizing Your Life

Prioritizing Your Life

Time is of the essence and it is one that does not wait for anyone. Therefore it is our job to make sure that we spend our time wisely.

When we don't prioritize our lives and what's important to us, we won't go anywhere and we won't be able to reach our goals. Our priorities in life should be aligned with our values and our personal goals within the next decade.

The Principles of Prioritizing

There are two principles to understand when it comes to prioritizing:

  1. What do you want to prioritize?
  2. How much time will you spend on each one?

Once we learn the answers to those questions we can only then behind to properly prioritize what is needed.

We usher in the factors of time and scheduling, our reasoning, our capability of pursuing, and proper tracking of progress. When we hold ourselves accountable for each action taken, we are able to waste less time and become more productive.

Being able to perform any type of professional activity with a focus that is unable to be penetrated by any type of distraction is deep work. This habit helps push our cognitive capabilities to their own limits into which improves our skills and adds value to ourselves.

Having periods of long-focus allows us to focus less on the pressure of time and more on what we produce in that time. By finishing what is needed, we have more time to ourselves and it is easier to see our priorities.
