The question I have for you is, are you making time?
About a week ago, I was on my way to a health a medical conference with some of the nationally known health care experts in their fields. J.J. Virgin, Dave Asprey, and Josh Axe were a part of this conference. When I was going through airport security in Medford, OR. the gal working actually stopped me, looked at me, and said, “Wait, I know you. Is your name Dr. Gala?” After I replied yes, she went on to say, “ I’ve been trying to get in to see you. You are extremely hard to get an appointment with.” I was struck by this. Yes, it is hard to get an appointment with me for several reasons.
But, this is where priorities come in. What are you making time for?
We all have the same amount of hours in each day. The same hours that Albert Einstein, Martin Luther King, and Gandhi had every day – it just depends on what we are doing with our time. Little things can save so much time, for example batching tasks.
You determine your priorities based on how you choose to spend your time. What are you spending your time on? Then decide if that priority focuses on your overall goals. Whether it’s health, business, finances, or relationships – make sure the time you devote to tasks is taking you closer to achieving your goals.
So I encourage you to look at each day’s to do list while keeping in mind your priorities and what you want to accomplish in your life and your health. Whatever you are doing right now, is that what you have decided is your priority? What systems or people or support do you have in place to dial down the noise of life, and focus on what matters to you?
