More often than not, we waste energy on things of little to no importance. Granted many of those things may seem important to the person expending the energy but in reality it does not hold as much weight and authority as one may give them. In addition to the authority a person gives their problems, the incredible amount of energy spent on non-factors reduces the time you could be investing into resolving your issue or accomplishing a particular goal.
It is imperative that you take the initiative to organize your life today. By organize, I don’t mean have every single detail planned out; although that would be ideal. By organize; I am referring to creating a mental picture. Simply, have a clear picture of where you want to be in the future and begin working on making it a reality.Time is truly of the essence; invest more time focused on building your dream.
Once you have a clear mental picture of your desired future, you must now drill down to the details. Drilling down to the details requires you to write down clear objectives and establish “must-outcomes”. Must-outcomes are outcomes that must occur no matter what may try to stand in your way. I separate goals into two categories; desired-outcomes and must-outcomes. It is possible to accomplish goals on both lists, if you focus intently on it.
Reorganize and Reexamine Your Priorities. Accomplishing your goals takes precedence over everything else. Stop wasting time on things that don’t matter and start investing more time into building your dreams.

Today, I encourage you to change the way you look at things. I also want to encourage you to take a closer look at your list of priorities. There are some things that you are making a priority that should not even have made the list. Furthermore, there are some people in your life who you are making a priority while they only consider you an option. Choose today to pull out that list and check it twice.
You know who these people are and they need to be removed from that list of top 5 that don’t even include you. How someone can have a list of priorities and not have themselves at the top of that list is beyond me. The only exceptions may perhaps be your children and your spouse and the higher power you believe in. Even with those considerations, most folks still don’t round out the top 5 with them making the list.
Once you are clear about what you will and will not take, then and only then can your intentions be made clear. Don’t put up with someone who does not treat you the way you deserve to be treated simply because you are afraid to be alone. Don’t you think you deserve better? I know you do and so do you. Reevaluate your list and consider making some changes. Sometimes we have done all we can with what we have and still nothing changes. It does not necessarily mean that we are doing something wrong; it simply means that we are directing those actions at the wrong person. The right person will respond reciprocally.
Someone will appreciate the amazing person that you are but first you have to make room to invite them in. Never make someone a priority when they only consider you an option. You deserve better.
