Priorities

Knowing your purpose should allow you to organize and prioritize your activities. But if you know your purpose and continue to align yourself with something that’s not what you’re supposed to be doing…

If you continue to say yes to things that are not aligned with your vision or values…

Or if you feel guilty about saying no and you talk yourself into doing something you know you shouldn’t be doing…

Then you’re going to be out of balance and experience stress.

“Your purpose determines your priorities, your priorities direct your plans, and your plan gives energy to your push. If one is misaligned, everything suffers.” ~ Cortney Sigilai

Everything you do should be an expression of your purpose. If an activity doesn’t fit you shouldn’t be doing it. Knowing your purpose helps you laser focus your effort and energy on the things that matter… and ignoring or deferring the things that don’t.
