Setting your priorities

For those who aspire to become entrepreneurs, it is essential to remain focused on the desired goals.  In addition to having self-discipline, one must also have set priorities that dictate where personal effort is to be directed .  Along with clear set priorities, one must also ensure that proper action is being taken with the intent of desired goal achievement.  It is also of paramount importance that one learns to manage his or her activities during their hours awake so that they are effective in attaining desired results.

Being as how the amount of time in a day is fixed, how we manage our activities has a profound effect on the rate at which our goals are achieved.  Each of us has different goals and desires. In order to engage in their pursuit; we must ask ourselves how committed we are to achieving them.  Also in need of consideration are the actions we need to take to bring about the change we seek.  In other words, what are we willing to do and how long are we willing to invest in order to ensure that we achieve that which we desire?

An obstacle that faces each one of us is the myriad of daily tasks we deem necessary for accomplishment on a daily basis.  Of course their are the daily necessities such as meals, sleep, bathing, work, attending to financial matters, etc. Another obstacle that one may have to deal with is the tendency to get distracted.  I myself have had to work on this (still do!) because over the course of time, this can result in many hours lost.  Just now, while writing this post, I found myself getting sidetracked with trying to find out about how to program a certain WordPress plugin dealing with footnotes.  I immediately had to get myself back “on task” with the writing of this post.

When deciding what to do during the course of any given day, you should ask yourself if the items you plan on accomplishing will help you to achieve your goals?  If so, great! If not, maybe it would be a good idea to reevaluate whether or not spending time on them would be a good idea.  Simplification in your overall schedule in order to separate the important things from the not so important things may be what’s needed to provide an extra measure of assurance in accomplishing what you truly wish to.

For those of you who find yourself seemingly overwhelmed with things to get done; give some thought to what is mentioned in this post.  You may find yourself with extra time you did not know you had as a result.
