Q. I have so many conflicting priorities. How do I decide which one is most important? Help me please John!

“Thank you for this very interesting question. It’s one that comes up frequently for many of you living today.

“Priorities”- I suppose the clue is in the word itself; meaning it’s all about order of importance. 

Your world is your own creation. When you understand this, you become aware of how the decision’s you make every day impact on the quality and sense of fulfilment in your life. 

As a consequence, every daily decision you make impacts the priorities you have previously set and this can mean change in your daily or overall responsibilities. 

Usually you only ever consider this when you feel short on time or overwhelmed by the amount of tasks you have to complete.

Regardless, there is always something that drives the way you organise your priorities; usually this is lack of time or physical, mental or emotional energy.

Be kind to yourself and don’t set unreasonable deadlines for the completion of projects. Look at your responsibilities regularly so you remain aware of what is going on within the bigger picture.

This means that when an unexpected interruption or emergency appears in your life, your entire system doesn’t break down because of the impact on your emotional, mental and physical wellbeing. Be honest with yourself regarding what is possible at any given time.

When you establish a regular habit of assessing your current priorities, you remind yourself of two important things: 1. You are human, and 2. You are doing the best you possibly can.

Be willing to look at the reality of the present moment with an open mind and remain eager to find a solution that can sustain you on all levels.

Ask yourself, what needs to be done now? What can be rescheduled without too much disruption? Always remember you are in charge. You make the decisions and you decide, whether you stick with them or not. Revisiting any decision is always OK.

When you approach your priorities in this way, you will be more efficient, productive and better prepared to accommodate the unexpected.

The up side of this is you will feel much more pro-active and in control of your life, as opposed to reactive and feel you’re losing control.  You will also feel much better about your projects, yourself and the whole of your life.

 

With Love,
