5. Realize that You can’t do Everything. After you get organized with your priority lists, you might be tempted to have your attention on too many things at once. You need to realize that there are only 24 hours in a day. There are things you wanted to accomplish that you won’t be able to just yet. Schedule it for another day and don’t sweat it.
6. Keep your Focus. Strive to remain focused on your priorities. Everyone’s mind begins to stray every now and then, which is okay sometimes. But you don’t want to allow procrastination to creep up on you. Keep your eyes on your priorities. Do them first.
7. Show your Enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is very important to setting priorities. If you’re not enthusiastic up about your goals, you may end up losing interest in achieving them. Don’t them overwhelm you. You may nee to re-examine them – to determine what’s important to you. Achieving priorities & goals is very difficult without a decent dose of enthusiasm. You can keep it up by reminding yourself, why it’s really important to you. If you’re working towards a specific goal, keep in mind how great you’ll feel once you achieve it and how it will contribute to your satisfaction & happiness.
8. Reward Yourself. It’s important to reward yourself for setting priorities and completing them. If you’ve made an achievement towards a significant priority or goal, don’t just cross it off your list and move on to the next thing. Take some time out to reward yourself for a job well done. You deserve it! Make it appropriate to the accomplishment.
