With so much information at our finger tips it can be challenging to remain on pace with scheduled plans. How does one remain productively focused in areas that matter most in life?
My zest in life is derived from four components (core values); God, Family, Community, Career, (G.F.C.C.) and require deep attention and energy. Core values (priorities) should ignite deep passion, that when nurtured, will offer exponential fulfillment in life. As such, time well spent in any activity should target at least one core value.
With regard to time, it’s important to emphasize that quantity does not necessarily equate to quality. In other words, the quantity of time dedicated for each core value will vary based on your own life situation and goals. However, time allocated for an activity that, specifically targets a core value, should remain faithful to the value. If, at any point, an unplanned activity arises that neglects one or more of your core values, it should simply be labeled least priority and noted at the bottom of a ‘to-do-list’.
The biggest misconception with planning, of any extent, is the illusion that the actual process of planning without action has resulted in productivity and growth in areas that matter most in life. Establishing personal values (priorities) is equally important to becoming intentional in action planning.
