Meaningful priorities

In order to do more in one area of life you must do less in other areas. So ask yourself, what matters most, and what can you let go of?

Make more room for what’s important by leaving behind what’s not. Seize upon opportunities to free yourself from the trivial, the superficial, and create more space for the consequential.

You can really only give quality attention to one thing at a time. Be your best self by prioritizing where your attention is invested.

Certainly it’s easy to get distracted by the bright lights and captivating cacophony of emptiness. Yet it’s really not that difficult to turn away, toward what truly matters.

Your life, your time, your resources are precious and filled with great potential. Remind yourself of your opportunity and responsibility to fulfill that potential.

Your priorities determine how your life unfolds. Every moment, every choice is your chance to keep those priorities strong, steady, and meaningful.
