How well does this allotment align with your daily schedule?
My guess is you spend a SLIGHTLY 😏 higher % of your day in the “urgent and important” section.
That is, until you burn out and eventually find yourself spending WAY more than 5% of your time in the bottom two quadrants (see “Wordle, Candy Crush, Netflix, Celebrity Gossip,” etc.).
Feeling lost and confused about how to best prioritize your time & energy, or feeling drained and bogged down by emails & a laundry list of “logistics” that seem to have popped up out of nowhere, we end up giving our energy to the quick-hit satisfaction that can be found in the bottom two tiers.
Does this sound familiar? If so, you are absolutely not alone.
68% of leaders interviewed by the authors of “Do What Matters Most” said that their #1 challenge was focusing on what matters most.
80% didn’t have a clear process for how to prioritize their time.
I KNOW this resonates with the experience of a lot of folks, especially those in leadership positions.
We must learn to PRIORITIZE…AND adhere to that prioritization in spite of the many distractions that are thrown our way.
How do we do this?
By following these three steps:
- Write down a personal vision.
- Set annual goals for your personal AND professional life.
- Plan the next week in advance.
It’s really that simple, yet also that complicated. The good news is that you have all the answers you need inside of you. The challenge is that you need help pulling them out and staying accountable to them.
That’s where step #4 comes in: Find a coach to keep you consistently accountable to your priorities.
Prioritization doesn’t just happen. It takes conscious effort, but is a total game changer when it comes to living your best life and leading others effectively.
