Setting Priorities

We all get the same number of hours in a day and the real power
in an hour is in setting priorities because without priorities, every
thing seems important.

Dave Lakhani's new book Power of An Hour : Business and Life
Mastery in One Hour A Week
outlines how the change you want
in your business and in your life can occur in just one hour because
of way you harness the hour.

Here are eight steps to harness your hour by setting priorities.

1.  Choose carefully in setting priorities in every aspect of your work
      and life.

2.  Decide on what your priorities are because all priorities are not
      number one priorities.

3.  Establish and set your priorities according to what you value
      most -- this means knowing what you value, what you want
      and arranging them in the order of what matters to you most.

4.  You have a better chance of achieving what matters to you most
      by being realistic in creating possible outcomes, and concentrating
      on the results you want.

5.  Concentrate on one thing at a time.

6.  Be prepared for conflict; resolved them by applying the following
      criteria: (a) outcome will benefit more people than the other, and
      (b) outcome will cause greater harm if deferred.

7.  Focus your energy on what you value most and be prepared for
      change.  Your needs and desires invariably change, so reexamine
      your priorities at least every five weeks.

8.  Include family members; make sure your spouse -- or significant
      other -- is part of the priorities-setting process.  Children, too, must
      have some say in priorities that affect them.

Remember -- in setting your priorities to-do list look for things that
will help you feel secure, happy and fulfilled.

Get going and start because the longer you wait to identify and begin
working toward the outcomes you want, the more difficulty you'll have
reaching them.
