How To Focus on Your Highest Priorities

To create a successful and happy life, it is so important that we live according to our priorities.  There are so many things such as e-mail,

Facebook and phone calls that can distract us from making progress on our goals.  When I’m working, I find it helpful to ask myself the following question, “Is what I’m doing right now the best use of my time?” Here are my favorite quotes on the importance of priorities:


“This is our predicament.  Over and over again, we lose sight of what is important and what isn’t.”     -Epictetus


“How different our lives are when we really know what is deeply important to us, and keeping that picture in mind, we manage ourselves each day to be and to do what really matters most.”

-Stephen Covey


“How we live our days is how we live our lives.”  -Annie Dillard


“You will never find time for anything.  If you want time, you must make it.”                                                -Charles Bixton



“Things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least.”                                   -Joann Wolfgang Von Goethe


“We realize our dilemma goes deeper than shortage of time; It is basically a problem of priorities.  We confess, ‘We have left undone those things that we ought to have done; and we have done those things which we ought not to have done.”       -Charles E. Hummel


“Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is a nobler art of leaving things undone.  The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of nonessentials.”                                           -Lin Yutang
