Money, Time, Priorities = More Problems

Maybe? Sort of. Not really. But yes, they could mean those things.

Have you ever caught yourself saying, “I can’t afford it?” but then you end up buying other things that perhaps you just don’t need. Or let me put it to you this way, perhaps in a more visual sort of way…you contemplate spending $100 on one thing and you decide not to do it, only to see your credit card, debit card or PayPal account add up to the same amount after a few other items land into your real or more often than not “virtual” shopping cart. And if you have even more money at your disposal the contemplation (good and bad) can escalate.

And then there is the time issue. We often tell ourselves we “don’t have the time.” This is especially evident when it comes to eating right, exercising, cleaning the house and helping in our communities by volunteering to make a difference. We only get 24 hours in a day, or 86,400 seconds if you want to look at it another way. We put limits on our time, more than we put them on anything else.

When we contemplate such things as not having enough money and not having enough time, we are essentially saying “this or that is not a priority for me.”

If you have picked up a copy of my book, hard cover or digital, and you have read even just a single chapter or two, you would know that it’s a treatise on priorities, and how to make them work for you. A way to rethink the things that not only matter most to you, but things that should take up a little more of your time and even a little more of your money.

For me, when I care about something, I can get so much done. And as many of my mentors have taught me, one way to choose to care is to be clear about your priorities. To not just set goals, but rather to be intentional in what you need to accomplish. To dive into the details and be a little more specific.

Priorities my friends are what help us not only complete the journey, but actually enjoy it. Our priorities don’t offer us more problems unless that is how we choose to see them.

Today I want to challenge you to rethink your priorities. Start with YOU, think about your WHY and your PURPOSE, reevaluate how you choose to spend time with those at your TABLE and then start to think about how your “work” and your “passions” are lining up. These are just a few of the many that I talk about. What are you waiting for?

And a friendly reminder in case you did not see it on Facebook or Instagram…and please don’t worry about buying a book, as I would love for you to just stop by and say hello.
