It was only in the 1900’s that it became possible to use the word ‘priorities’.
For the preceding 500 years it was simply ‘priority’.
It was singular.
It meant the very first thing.
Something that must happen immediately prior.
Do you ever have those days where you have so much to do, and you end up working on so many things that you never really get any of them done?
Try setting a #1 priority for each day.
Make it one thing you can hit out of the park. Something that will move your dream forward. Something that will give you a moment of pride when you complete it.
Then do that FIRST.
[NB it takes effort to think about your priority every day, and more discipline to do it, but the pay back is incredible. Do give it a try]
Thank you to the many people I’ve connected with this year, who gave me an unimaginable gift.
Thank you for the irreplaceable gift of your time.
As I head off for a short break tomorrow and I didn’t want to leave without saying Thank You!
Thank you for meeting, talking, messaging, listening, reading, coffee’ing and connecting with me. Thank you for encouraging, challenging, stimulating and evoking me.
My life is honestly so much richer because of you! And I wish I could list you all!
You were present.
You gave me the gift of your time.
And as we head towards time with friends and family and then into 2018 it reminds me…
It is better to be present than give presents.
May we be ‘present’ this Christmas!
