#111 - Living Forward (Chp 5 - Determine Your Priorities)
“We tend to think effective people are busy. Not so, unless they’re busy with the right things—and many people aren’t. When things in our business or life get busy and hectic, we often lose sight of our priorities. But by keeping the truly important things front and center, we often get the perspective we need to make better decisions.”
You have to decide what is best for you. There is no point in keeping up with others if they are going to a destination that is different from yours.
Life Accounts: Life can be viewed in terms of compartments. These compartments are called life accounts.
* The Circle of Being. These are things that emanate from you. They include the spiritual, physical, and intellectual accounts
* The Circle of Relating. These are things that are centered on you in relation to others. They include your marital, parental, and social accounts
* The Circle of Doing. These are activities that deal with you in relation to your output. They include what you do for work, what you do as a hobby, and your finances
Review each account and determine where you are. Just like bank accounts, your life accounts could either be growing, stagnating, or declining. The goal is to have a positive balance in each of your accounts.
