Why you need to prioritise
Working out what your priorities are is probably one of the best ways to create calm in busy life. Some priorities may change almost daily, but working out your long term goals can give you a framework that will help you make better day to day decisions.
If you don’t work out your long term goals it you may find that you are trying to do too much in too little time while trying to please everyone and pleasing no one.
Worse than that we can start feeling resentful that actually the stuff pulling at our time is all about what needs to be done rather than the things we aspire to do either in our home or work-life.
Internal conflicts and your priorities
Sometimes the internal conflicts with her ambitions at work and the practical situation at home can leave you feeling a bit of a failure.
A failure, because you feel not doing a very good job on either front almost like a boat in storm being tossed around and never managing to dock anywhere.
OK, so yes circumstances may change, but having a master plan is like having a map when you go on a long car journey. If you don’t know where you are going or when you are likely to get there you are probably going to get lost or just go round in circles. And the likelihood is that you will probably end up feeling very stressed, in a muddle and a bit of a failure.
Defining your goals and prioritising
Defining your goals will help you to prioritise what is the most important thing you need to do right now. Writing them down somewhere you can review them will really help to stop the muddled thinking and sharpen your focus on what you want to achieve given your personal circumstances.
Your priorities will determine your goals and will act as a guide, a check that you are on the right road. This will help you take a long-term view of situations rather than focusing just on the here and now and help you work out on a day-to-day basis exactly what you need to focus on right now.
