Prioritize With Persistence: Effort + Time = Success


Prioritizing with persistence involves examining your To-do list through the story of your long-term goals. We all can get lost in the weeds of immediate demands if we don’t consciously re-focus on projects that are vital to us but won’t get done in a day, a week, a month, a year or even a decade.

Ask yourself these five questions:

  1. What’s one long-term goal or project that’s really important to me that I’d like to persist a little more with?
  2. Which item on my To-Do list is a step towards taking action on my important long-term goal?
  3. Which item on my To-Do list could be done repeatedly every day for at least thirty days (creating a new synaptic groove in the brain)?
  4. Which item on my To-Do list could be best moved along by application of grit, determination, will, perseverance?
  5. Which item is important enough for me to invest some long-term effort into?
