“You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage – pleasantly, smilingly, unapologetically – to say no to other things. And the way you do that is by having a bigger ‘yes’ burning inside.” – Stephen Covey
How true is this?!
Our core values tend to stay fairly constant over time, but our priorities change. As we approach a new month and season, what do you consider your top priorities? What is worth putting on your to-do list and truly deserving of your attention? What would you say ‘Absolutely YES!’ to versus ‘Hmmm…maybe’ or ‘Heck no!’?
I have spent some time evaluating this for myself over the past few weeks, and I have come up with my short list of top priorities. They’re a little different than they were 3 months ago, and *quite* different from a year ago.
This check-in with myself is so helpful, and I encourage you to consider it, too.
Decide what’s worth your ‘absolute yes’ for this season in your life. Let go of comparison and FOMO and all that other stuff, knowing that you are honoring a deeper, bigger YES. Your future self will thank you!
