Priorities and Success
Parkinson’s Law – Demand will always match supply – can be applied to many aspects of life. One iteration of it could be stated, “If you don’t fill your day with high priority activities, your day, by default, will be filled with low priority activities.”
How true is that?
If you don’t MAKE time for exercise, you’ll never find time for it.
If you don’t MAKE time for preparing healthy meals, you’ll be forced to pick up a quick bite which never turns out to be healthy.
If you don’t MAKE time for prayer or meditation to clear your mind and spirit, you’ll fall into bed, exhausted, and forget all about it.
If you don’t MAKE a daily schedule of activities and goals, you’ll find yourself wandering mindlessly through the day.
Each day when you get to work, or better yet, the night before, set out a plan for the day. What you will accomplish, who you will talk to, when you will exercise, what you will eat – placed in priority order. Do the highest priority jobs FIRST!
“If you fail to plan, you’re planning to fail.” – Benjamin Franklin
