Where are you with your 2019 goals (resolutions)? Are you accomplishing what you set out to do this year or are you too busy for your priorities?
Although it is true that you do not have time to do everything, you do have time to do what is truly important to you. We all have the same 24-hours each day. So why do some people achieve their goals while others don’t? The difference is knowing how to use your time in order to focus on your priorities.
If you spend time on non-priority activities, then obviously you have less time available for your priorities. Saying “no” to some activities is as important as is saying “yes,” and perhaps even more so. When you say yes to something now, you are saying no to something else. So, when you are evaluating the progress you are making on your goals ask yourself:
• Did I have the time, but chose to spend it on something else?
• Is this still a high priority for me?
• What is distracting me?
• What choices have I made that were counterproductive to achieving my goal?
Remember it is the choices and decisions you make daily that will determine if you achieve your goals.
