The Enemy of Our Best

You have to decide what your highest priorities are.  Think about your core values. What is truly important to you? When all is said and done, what is your life about? It can be more than one thing, but it probably isn’t 500 things.  Define your core values and then you can figure out your priorities.  If you figure out your priorities, it is easier to set goals.

Write out your 5 priorities.  Seriously.  Right now.  Go ahead.  I’ll wait.  Examples of priorities could be:  Debt free, finishing college, reducing blood pressure, purchasing a home, getting a certification, educating your children at home, reducing body fat, publishing a book, growing a sustainable garden, learning a new language, completing a project, etc.  Did you write out your five?  Great.  So glad you did.

Now, here’s the challenge.  And you thought picking 5 priorities was the hard part, didn’t you?   I dare you to have the courage to calmly, with a smile, non-apologetically, answer “NO” to other things that do not match up with those top 5 priorities and your core values.  How do you do that?  Some of us, *ahem* (myself included), have trouble finding our NO voice.  SOME of us have trouble setting boundaries.  Here’s how you do this.   It is easier to say NO when we have a bigger YES burning inside of us. The enemy of our BEST is often ….simply the good.
