Do you have a list of things to do today?

Look at your list of things to do for today.
Ask yourself how did each of those "to-do" items get there?  Who put them on your list? and why did you allow them to be put on your list.

There are very few of us who are 100% in charge of our schedules - we have bosses, spouses, kids, family members, clients and others who need our attention. But I want you to look at the priorities you have chosen  for today and ask this one question:

 Are these items "urgent" or "important"?

Yes, things can be urgent AND important, but they are usually not both, we get trapped into believing that what we do is  both important or urgent. So if we beleive what we have to do is both urgurent and important and we fall short of time, or energy what happens? People fall into the trap of only dealing with the "urgent" items - items that aren't really important in the grand scheme of things, but are urgent because someone or something else is banging on their door asking for their attention.

Please be sure that you don't ignore the really important things. The things that never present themselves as urgent until it is too late.  

  You know what I'm talking about.
  • Spending time with loved ones
  • Proper nutrition
  • Sufficient exercise
  • Dreaming of the future you want and then moving in the direction of those dreams.

This is YOUR life.  Live it on purpose!
