How are you deciding what tasks are important? Many of us are tuned to external direction. We get bombarded with different priorities from our boss, our spouse, our friends, advertising on TV, and even our mother. No wonder we’re not sure where to start!
What is important to YOU?
Many of us have no idea how to answer that question. We were never taught how to hear our own priorities and wants. They were overshadowed by the noise and demands all around us.
What do you really want to experience in life? Will this task help you get it?
One way to know what’s really important (rather than what you think or were taught SHOULD be important to you), is to tune into your body.
For instance, you may have heard over and over again as a child that you MUST work hard to save every penny so you had financial security. But in your heart, you may long for more freedom. You may have enough abundance that hiring someone to clean the house would be well worth the money spent. What could you do with the time you would otherwise spend cleaning? Even though it may “violate” the rules you were taught, you it okay to now hold different priorities in your heart.
