This is a great week to get yourself organised and sort out your priorities as we approach the last quarter of the academic year.
This week’s theme is ’Prioritising Success’
When you’re faced with competing deadlines, tons of interests, a part-time job, demanding friends and family, AND an inner desire to succeed and be the best you can be, it can be very difficult to know how to prioritise! Everything seems important, all the time. This week’s insights should give you some ideas how to put yourself and your most important needs first. Hopefully with a few minutes spent organising your To Do list, or even identifying the things in your life you value most, you will start to learn how to get everything done in a systematic and organised way - and not let yourself or anyone else down in the process!
Warren Buffet is a famous investment guru. Here is an article from one of my favourite websites, Live Your Legend (download their toolkits) 5 Step Process for Prioritising True Success (and Why People Never Do it):
Every day this week before you go to bed, write out a list of To Do items for the next day. Write down everything! Then go through the list and circle the 3 MOST IMPORTANT things you must do the next day, and focus on crossing them off your list before mid-day. The article above offers an easy 10 point plan to make prioritising and achieving your goals very easy.
If you REALLY want to get good at this, make a weekly To Do list every Sunday for the upcoming week. Prioritise the items by day, and choose your 3 most important tasks every day. Next Sunday, go over your list and see how much you accomplished - I bet you’ll be surprised at how much you can get done in a week by learning how to prioritise!
