Why You Need to Identify Your Priorities
Updated: Jul 7
Have you ever had those moments where you just felt completely scatter brained? Where you have felt overwhelmed and tugged in a million different directions?
I have been there too, recently actually. It was a tell tale sign that my priorities and daily actions/choices were not in alignment. Which forced me to take a long hard look at where I was pouring my attention to and what I needed to do pivot in the direction I want to be heading. The direction which allows me to show up as the best version of myself for the VIP people in my life.
It was thanks to having a therapist who helped me to uncover some of the root causes and allowed me to openly talk through what was going on, did I have the revelation that things were off within me. It then inspired me to take action and work through an exercise I LOVE to coach my clients through, which is to identify your top 5 priorities in your life.
Why Do You Need to Identify Your Priorities?
If you don't know what the main priorities in your life are, then you're going to go through life not giving the most important pieces of your life the love and attention they deserve. You may constantly feel like you're pulled in different directions, unsatisfied and unhappy with the way you are spending your days.
Take the time to identify the 5 most important things in your life-there is no right or wrong here. Just list them as they come to your mind. This way you have the awareness as to what is of the highest value to you. This understanding will help you when you are creating your schedule and making your daily choices. It will take some practice and time, but with this knowledge you can then stop to pause before you make commitments to others. Before you even make your never ending to do list.
There will be more to come on this topic, so stay tuned for next steps once you have brought the awareness to your top 5 priorities!
