Did you know that the word Priority was not meant to be used in its plural form? The Latin root of the
word priority means â€œfirst.â€ You canâ€™t have more than one â€œfirstâ€ and yet we use the word â€œprioritiesâ€ all
the time. As if we can have multiple #1â€™s. No wonder we sometimes feel overwhelmed.
I believe there is great value and peace in living from a place of priority (singular), rather than a place of
priorities (plural). Today, I want to share with you three techniques that I have found to be very useful.
(I like to journal these questions in the morning.)
1) You can ask yourself, â€œWhat is my #1 priority today? What can I do today that will make the
2) You can use the Paredo Principle â€” The 80-20 Rule. â€œWhat should I focus my efforts on today?
What takes up 20% of my time and energy, but gives 80% of the results?â€
3) You can go old-school and make a master to-do list. Then rate each item as A, B, or C.
A = Important and Urgent (must be done today)
B = Important, but not Urgent
C = Not Urgent, Not Important
I hope this is helpful to you. These questions are so simple, yet they really bring clarity.
Wishing you all the best,
