2016 A to Z Blogging Challenge
I can’t think of anything more important to managing my time effectively than prioritizing.
And that’s prioritizing everything, not just writing projects. Every day I take the time to figure out what needs done and then prioritize what needs done today. It’s part of that mountain climbing thing I talked about a few days ago.
What I thought was vitally important yesterday may be less so today. Needs do change. Decisions made by others have a ripple effect. So it’s important to examine what I need to do to maximize my time.
Unfortunately for me, or maybe it’s fortunately because I do like getting a paycheck, my day job is a priority Monday through Friday. Everything has to fall in around the day job and that includes family, friends and writing career. Everything. I don't like it much, but that's the financial reality of it.
If I keep the main things in my life a priority, those little things that slip away maybe weren’t so important. It’s up to me to decide.
