Do the Most Important Thing First
Doing the most important things first is a sure way to get the things done that really matter to you. It’s good advice that I work hard at following myself.
But is it easy to do right off the bat? Nope, not usually.
Here’s why — and what to do to fix that.
Think for a minute about what you do during a typical day — or even just what you did this morning. In fact, go ahead and list out the things you remember doing.
Does your list look something like this?
Let the dog out
Wake up the family
Got ready for work
Grabbed something to eat
Went to work
Ran errands/ate at lunch
If a step toward the dream you have or the goal that’s most important for you to achieve wasn’t on your list, chances are it’s because you allowed life to get in the way.
That’s right, life doesn’t “just” get in the way (most of the time.) You allow the daily tasks of life to get in the way. Then by the end of the day, all you want to do is relax, veg, or fall into bed. So your dreams get put off.
The fix (and a key to success) is this: get up early and do at least one of your important things before you do anything else.
You’ll feel a whole lot better and reach your goals/fulfill your dreams a whole lot faster, I promise.
