Tip #17 What Matters Most?
When we know what matters most to us, decisions become easy and priorities become clear.If you are stressed out, overwhelmed or running too fast (sound familiar, anyone?), step back and remind yourself to ask, “What matters most to me?” Now you can take your next right step.
You’ve got a lot on your plate. What matters most to you right now? Based on this, write down your next right step.
I know. It’s easy to gloss over your answer here. You could just say “my family” or some other stereotypical answer and move on with your day.
But if you want to want this 60 seconds to result in a change that matters…don’t stop at “what” is important to you… push yourself to find the “why”. Why are the things you value most important to you? Once you have your “why” you have the reason and motivation to fight for what matters when your days inevitably don’t go according to plan.
I promise, when the stressors in life become overwhelming and life seems impossible to navigate, knowing why and what you are fighting for will make all the difference in the world.
