What Are Your Priorities?

A Mini Golf Course The Author Played With His Son

I'm not much of a golfer. Golf is just something I never put much time into, and I never developed skill at it. However, I took my 4-year-old son mini-putting this weekend, and it's safe to say he takes after me when it comes to the golf realm – like 10 to 15 strokes per hole. LOL!

That's not to say that he can't get good at it. It just means that he isn't good at it YET. If he puts in dedicated practice and wants to get better at it, it probably won't take very long before he's beating me on every hole. It comes down to priorities.

We all lie to ourselves and tell a story about why we never go to the gym, why we haven't taken that European vacation we've always dreamed about, or why we haven't made finances a priority. "I just don't have time."

In reality, we haven't made it a priority. I'm not good at golf because I haven't made it a priority. At this stage of my life, I'm okay with that. To make changes in our lives, we must change our priorities. Maybe that means getting up earlier in the morning or staying up later at night to learn something. Maybe that means cutting out other lower-priority activities in your day. Or maybe that means surrounding yourself with the right people to teach you the things that you want to know.

Task for this week: Think about how you spend your time in a day (your current priorities). They've gotten you to where you are today. Would you like to make changes in your health, your finances, your business, or your personal life? What do you need to prioritize to make that happen?
