Discover Your Priorities

Discover Your Priorities

You probably have a good idea of your values. Now it’s time to follow up on Monday’s post and do some fine tuning to discover your priorities.

Create an ideal calendar day. If you could wave a magic wand and have a completely successful and happy day, how would it run? My ideal day would include time outside, time playing with my daughter, dinner with my family, a meaningful conversation with my husband, and a nice long bath or meditation. All those activities fall into one of two priorities: quality time and self-care.

Another way to create your calendar day is to use the Stephen Covey matrix:

These are two possible ways to sharpen your values and identify your priorities. To learn about other suggestions and ideas, check out my YouTube video on discovering priorities:
