Priorities. You need them, in particular they should be in order and aligned with your goals. If you don’t know Priority is defined as:
|1.||the condition of being prior; antecedence; precedence|
|2.||the right of precedence over others|
|3.||something given specified attention: my first priority|
Look at number 3. Something given specified attention. Sounds like a goal right? Or rather a means to an end, which would be the goal. If your goal is to get healthy, get stronger, be a better dad/mom/sibling/friend, or move forward in life with a new job, then how are you getting there? You have to make priorities that allow you to correct and make positive decisions to aid you in reaching your goal. If you tell me that you have a goal to find a new job, then you go and spend half your day watching re-runs of Lost on Netflix…then your priorities and goals don’t match. If you tell me you want to be healthier, but only come and train one day a week, and keep eating refined carbs/processed food/grains/sugar, or drink more than you know you should…then you do not have your priorities straight.
Take a long, hard look at what is important to you in life. To breed success and have success in your life, you need to be actively taking the correct steps toward what you want to accomplish. Slowly, one step at a time, try changing your diet. Try to make it in the the gym to train more than one day a week. Schedule out time to play with your kids, spend some quality time with your spouse, or call up an old friend. Switch out re-run time for resume and job search time.
Either way, just stop and think about the decisions you are making and make sure they are guiding you in the direction that you want to go. Don’t lie to yourself either. Be truthful about your actions and choices. Become awesome!
