Each of us has the same amount of time in life; it is what is done with that time that makes the difference in having a better life. Prioritizing is doing the most important thing first.

Many people give lip service to what they say is valuable to them. The reality is where you spend your time and money is usually most important to you. Let me suggest scheduling your priorities. Begin blocking off time on your daily calendar for the things that are most important. If your family is important, then schedule time with them.

Here is a simple process:

  • Evaluate: Is this the best thing?
  • Delegate: What can come off my plate?
  • Estimate: How much time is required?

Work on comprehending this process. Learn the importance of prioritizing. Successful people live by their priorities, not by pressure.

  1. Deal with specific areas, not generalizations.

 

  1. Make expectations clear.

 

  1. Maintain direct communication.

  1. Be gentle. People are fragile.
