The most important thing is to keep the most important thing the most important thing.
After countless hours of consuming content related to productivity, strategy, and focus, I’ve formed a simple prioritisation approach. I use it every day. It’s remarkably effective, and I’ve recently learned that others like it too!
My top 3 priorities in life are:
- Health (H)
- Relationships ®
- Career ©
Every morning I write down three things that would make the day great. I then link each one to my priority list by marking it as H, R or C.
This simple approach ensures my activities align with my priorities and highlights if I’m neglecting any area.
I’m forced to reflect and question any activity which doesn’t align with my three priorities.
Regularly take a minute to check in with yourself, to ask yourself, “What’s really important?” you may find that some of the choices you are making are in conflict with your own stated goals.
