Nov 8, 2010 – Are you all over the place? Do you have a multitude of opportunities and all seem important and worth pursuing? Are you having a difficult time prioritizing to move forward? Are they awaiting you to take action or see if they are truly what they present themselves to be? Are you worried you may miss an opportunity or actually have missed opportunities? When opportunities are pulling you in a multitude of ways, then you need better focus.
Take an MM&I Moment to consider the following aspects of your opportunities and prioritize as follows. Which ones align specifically with your current goals in helping you fulfill your personal or professional mission? Place a “G” and an “M” next to them. Which ones have a specific deadline attached to them for when a decision or action needs to be taken? Place the date and prioritize according to which are fast approaching versus further in the future. Which ones require the least amount of effort promising the greatest gain? Place in order of least to most effort. Start with those that match your goals and purpose. Then compare to the remaining list of priorities. This will get you back in motion with a couple of the opportunities to pursue right now. It may also be time to get some outside help to advise and direct you.
