June 29, 2015 - Are you busy, yet not feeling productive? Are your days fast-paced with lots thrown at you at any given moment, and yet at the end of the day, you continue to see things you really wanted to get to not getting done? Do you feel as though your own priorities are continually getting shuffled to the end of the line in order to manage or handle all else that seems to be coming at you throughout your day? When you aren't feeling productive, in spite of being busy throughout the day, it is because you are busy doing things that are not fulfilling your key desires and responsibilities. You may need to take a moment to truly understand what your priorities are in the face of all that is being demanded upon you.
Take an MM&I Moment to understand why you are allowing so many other tasks, interruptions and activities to take precedence over what you truly want to be focusing upon and getting done. Consider the last few days and what you completed or were asked to do. How many of these items could be delegated to someone else? How many of them were actually necessary to respond to at the time versus those you chose to focus upon in spite of not really being urgent or necessary? How are you intentionally scheduling and setting aside time for what is most important? If you are not being intentional, ask yourself why. Answering these questions may help you shed some light on why you are allowing yourself to veer off course so much. Getting back on track could be as simple as putting your focus back where you truly want it to be to begin with.
