Priorities

How you spend your time reveals your priorities. You always have time for the things you put first.
Taro Gold

When your schedule leaves your brain drained and stressed to exhaustion, it’s time to give up something. Delegate. Say no. Be brutal. It’s like cleaning out a closet – after a while, it gets easier to get rid of things. You discover that you really didn’t need them anyway.
Marilyn Ruman

We all find time to do what we really want to do.
William Feather

I win Player of the Year, and 48 hours later I’m in Bucharest seeing street kids. I mean, how important is golf when you see something like that?
Betsy King

I often let football become more than a career to me – it was sometimes an obsession. As I began to understand what the Bible taught about loving God and my family, it helped me put football in perspective. While it didn’t mean I wanted to win any less, I realized whatever I did or didn’t accomplish as coach of the Cowboys wasn’t the most important thing in my life. And that helped take some of the pressure off.

The Power of Priorities

Never let the urgent crowd out the important.
Kelly Walker

When we set priorities in advance it reduces the pressure we feel when we must make decisions under fire.
Patrick Morley

Highly effective people are not necessarily those who get a ton of things done, but those who get the most important things done. They concentrate on scheduling their priorities, rather than prioritizing their schedule.
Peter Lowe

The key to successful time management is doing the most important task first, and giving it your full concentration, to the exclusion of everything else.
Alex MacKenzie

My cancer diagnosis prompted me to get my priorities straight, and fast. I realized that my health and family came first, my career second. It’s not that I care less about baseball, but I have a stronger sense than ever before of its place in my life.

Priorities

The key is not to prioritize what’s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.
Stephen Covey

To keep from being overwhelmed by adversity, I work hard to keep my priorities in order. The priorities in my life, ranked in descending order, are: God, family, others, football.
Bobby Bowden

Without ever knowing it, we are assaulted by a high note of urgency all the time. We end up pacing ourselves to the city rhythm whether or not it’s our own. In time we grow hard of hearing to the rest of the world. Like a violinist stuck next to the timpani, we may lose the ability to hear our own instrument.
Ellen Goodman

Start every day with the most important thing you have to do. Save the less important tasks for later.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Figure out what your top two or three priorities are, spend your time and energy on them, and let the rest go. Simply accept that it’s not possible to do it all, and that it’s all right if you don’t – in fact, it’s immeasurably better if you don’t. You can have a happy and fulfilling life while doing only part of it. People have done that successfully for years.
