Principles of success - How do I Set my priority list
We all wanted to be successful. We do many things to get the result.
We are overwhelmed by the works. Still, many times we fail to attain
the desired result in the way we wanted. Why it is so? We wonder many
times. We did a lot of work. Still there is no result.
It is the human tendency to do the work which is easy and fast. At the same time we put off the work which is difficult or need much time for tomorrow. And that tomorrow will never come. At the end of the day, the net result is zero. That is where we need to prioritize our work.
What is the most important priority in your life? Money, Fame, Family, Relation, Carrier, Business.
It is up to you what comes first. If you want make more money in your
life, Making money is to be given the first priority than any other
thing. Family, relation and hobbies comes only after that. Looking at
a man's work we can understand him. Most of the time he does the work
for which he gives priority. We tempt to do things which makes us
happy and what is easy. That is why many people spend more time in
front of TV. Watching movie while eating snacks within the comfort of
your home is a good and easy thing to do. You can spend hours there.
But it will not give you much result.
If you really want to make money, you need to focus on your business or ways of making money.
Let me cut short, if you want success in whatever you do, you need to prioritize your work. Stick to your priority. When you wake up in the morning, there are a lot of things you can do. Sleep a little more, brush your teeth, have a quite time, read the newspaper, watch the morning show on the TV, Make your tea, Exercise, take bath, Read one hour a motivational book etc. It is better you plan your day a day before. Planning the day in the morning is very difficult. You do things in the morning as they come. So Make your plan in a day before. Write down the things to be done. Then prioritize them in order to the importance.
Prioritize your tasks means making a list of things to do as per the importance. As without priorities and focus, it is virtually impossible for individuals to achieve results. You must be having a goal or you have taken a decision to do this or that. Making a decision only will not lead you to the success. There are more small decisions and steps to be taken to achieve that Goal. Suppose you want to get A+ grade in your studies, you have a goal. Study is the action to be taken to achieve that Goal. That is the first priority in your life. Till you reach that stage, there is no other things are important than getting an A+. There are times when you think, a little sleep will not make much difference. Then you think of watching a movie or playing football. Temptations will come. But remember, what is the priority at present. You can postpone that little sleep for the sake of achieving that A+, You can avoid that temptation to watching that movie.
Removing temptation and doing the work and making the small steps towards achieving your goal is called prioritizing. If you are setting a Goal to get A+ and you have a deep desire to achieve that goal, and you cannot resist the temptation of going for the swimming, will not take you to the A+. Once you complete your swimming, you are tired and want to take some rest. Then you cannot avoid that movie, then spending some time with your close friends etc. Priority list is there, desire is there, goal is there, opportunity is there, but if you are not taking the steps/actions towards your goal, there is no use of all other activities.
