I often hear people say they have such busy lives. I think it’s more a problem of having misguided priorities than being busy.
We are doing too much. Nobody is forcing us to do all the things we do. We choose to do them. We make these decisions to commit to so many things and people because we lack clarity of our priorities. The lack of clarity around priorities stems from the lack of clarity around one’s life purpose. Purpose defines priorities.
The answer lies in the simplification of our life. Most people do too much. Narrow down to the most important people and things. Simplify. Simplify to the key people and things in your life. Say “no” to everything else. Saying ‘No’ in this sense is one form of self-care. Focus on what matters. Less is best.
For those that are clear of their purpose and priorities, that have their focus narrow and deep, it’s important to not ramify your priorities. If this is allowed to happen then life will get busy again and busy with the things that do not support the ultimate goal.
The more clarity we have around our purpose/goal the more clarity we have around our priorities. Which allows us to know exactly who and what to focus on. When we know where to focus our awareness then we know where our energy is flowing.
