Today we'll start to look at next year and where you want to go and what you want to focus on. You might be wondering why I would put priorities before specific items or attitudes. Your priorities are like the categories or chapters of your new book (the book of 2016). Once you have figured out what you want to be of greatest importance in your life this coming year, you can then look at details or specifics.
With that in mind, today you should pick out the top 7 priorities in your life for 2016. Perhaps your health is a priority. What about relationships in general? Specific relationships? Getting organized? Getting a pet (even though this is specific it certainly could be a priority - but what would make it more valuable to you is to write down WHY you want a pet. Is it for companionship, to help a charity with a rescue, to make your kids happy and also teach them responsibility? Do you want to write a book? Do you have sports activities you want to be a priority? Maybe getting more rest is a priority or perhaps spending more time with your family. And on and on....
One of the reasons I am having you write out 7 priorities is that what's important in life is balance and if you just think about your life one priority after another you won't really achieve balance. You just hop from one hotbed of stress to the next. If you can figure out what is important to you, you can then figure out how to fit them all into your life simultaneously.
Try it. See what happens.
