The Law of Priorities

THE LAW OF PRIORITIES
When we are busy, we naturally believe that we are achieving. But busyness does not equal productivity. Activity is not necessarily accomplishment. Prioritizing requires leaders to continually think ahead, to know what’s important, to know what’s next, to see how everything relates to the overall vision.

•What Is Required? What must I do that nobody can or should do for me?

• What Gives the Greatest Return? Work in your areas of greatest strength. Is there something you’re doing that can be done 80 percent as well by someone else? If so, delegate it.

• What Brings the Greatest Reward? Life is too short not to do some things you love. What energizes you and keeps you passionate?

—The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership – John Maxwell – The Daily Reader

TODAY GIVE YOUR TIME ONLY TO THINGS THAT PASS THE REQUIREMENT, RETURN, REWARD TEST.
