Setting Priorities

The good news is that by continually setting priorities and concentrating on your highest value tasks, you soon develop the habit of high performance. This habit will then become automatic and will virtually guarantee you great success in life. This one habit alone can make you successful. Make a list of everything you have to do before you begin. Set priorities on that list by asking yourself four questions,

Question number one is: What are my highest value activities? What is it that you do that is more valuable than anything else to your work and your business?

Question number two is: Why am I on the payroll?" What exactly have you been hired to accomplish? Focus on results, not activities.

Question number three is: What can I and only I do that, if done well, will make a real difference?" This is something that only you can do. If you dont do it, it wont get done. But if you do do it, and you do it well, it can make a significant difference in your business or your personal life. What is it?

Question number four is this: What is the most valuable use of my time right now? There is only one answer to this question at any time. Your ability to determine the single most valuable use of your time and then to start in on that task is the key to high productivity and financial success.
