Have you ever felt like your actions were out of alignment with your priorities? I'd say I feel that way, oh, I don't know... all the time.
Supposedly, my priorities are, in order:
4. My Home
5 - 1,000,000. Other Stuff
However, if I were to list my priorities based on how I actually spend my time, they would probably look something like this:
1,000,000. Everything and Everyone Else
I think the word "selfish" comes to mind right about now.
Sometimes I get overwhelmed by all the things I want to do. There are so many things I'm interested in and want to learn that I sometimes let my responsibilities fall by the wayside. So I've decided to try something a little different.
Each day, I'll list the most important tasks for my most important priorities and I'll work through the list in order (as much as possible). No reading magazines until I've read the Bible. No organizing my computer bookmarks until I've done some organizing around the house.
I created a weekly template to help me do this, and I wanted to share it with you. It looks like this (only the actual document is two pages):
UPDATE: I've just uploaded a blank version of the weekly priority planner. You can find both versions on my downloads page.
