Do you have clear priorities outlined? If I ask you right now what your top five priorities are, would you be able to concisely articulate them? Chances are, you may struggle with this at first. Even though we all think we know what we want in life, it can be a challenging task to clearly define the order of importance of our desires.
After all, that’s what priorities are. Things that are important for us to do or have. A thing, or things, that is regarded as more important than others. This is where having clarity on your desired outcomes and the ability to differentiate between the 80 percent of inconsequential noise in life from the 20 percent that drives results is paramount to your success.
