daily inspiration: first things first

Posted on: February 18, 2011

Prioritizing? First things first? This may not sound especially revelatory, but in the Age of Distraction.. I mean, er, the Information Age… our attention goes elsewhere quickly.

So. Here we go:

Whatever is most important, do that first.

Don’t check email. Don’t get on Facebook. Don’t water the plants. Whatever is absolutely essential, do that. If you need to meditate, do that first. If you need to make a phone call, do it. Especially if there’s any sort of reluctance – take a deep breath, focus, walk over, and do it. One step at a time.

Action: Notice everything you are spurred to do, no matter how small. Write them all down on a list. Then, when you go back and do them, you can look more accurately at how you’re spending your time, and make conscious choices next time.
