A question that has been coming up lately for me is:
"What do I want to accomplish with my life?"
Obviously the marriage, kids and family accomplishments have been huge, but I'm only 33 (right? I'm 33?) - there is a lot of life left for me. Along with that question comes this one:
"If I could do anything with my life, what would it be?"
So as I look to answer those questions this year, I also need to focus on setting my priorities.
This week's goals are:
- Make a list of my top ten priorities/goals. They need to reflect what is important to me. I will keep them in a prime spot so that I can review them on a regular basis.
- Make a list of projects that need to be done, as well as ones that I want to get done. I need to make sure that while doing things that are required, I am also doing fun things as well.
- Schedule time in my calendar to actually focus on my priorities. One of my goals is to run a 5K this May. To do that, I need to mark out time to get to the gym, as well as change some things about my diet that will help me reach this goal. (Luckily I married an expert, so Keith is happily helping me with this goal.)
- Honor the priorities once they are set.
