If we have not made a desired goal a priority, how do we expect to achieve that goal in a desired time? We will always be able to think of reasons not to start, continue, or finish a project. We all have “life issues.” And, we all have 24 hours in a day.
I am not trying to undervalue what someone is going through. In fact as a coach, mentor, and a human being, I aim to understand what someone is going through and offer strategies to help them overcome perceived barriers.
Life is definitely a balancing act and a chance to tap into your unlimited creativity.
One conundrum that I often face is helping others to see that it is possible to achieve their goals. Once individuals see that achieving their goals is possible, their imaginary lid of “limited possibilities” comes off. Tasks become easier to complete and are completed in a timely fashion. It is amazing how much more effective we are once we have faith in our abilities. We no longer make excuses for what we did not accomplish and set achievable, realistic, and timely goals. We find creative means to balance family life, personal time, school, and work.
Until we make something a priority in our life, it will not be a priority.
“Most of us spend too much time on what is urgent and not enough time on what is important.”
― Stephen R. Covey
