3 Quotes to Help You Prioritize Your Goals
The other day I asked one of my Goal Getters what their number one goal was the rest of this year and what their number one obstacle was to achieving that goal. Their answer was not uncommon to what most people answer. They have a problem trying to prioritize their goals. Sometimes we can’t see the forest for the trees.
I don’t always know what do do first. I have so many things I am working on that I don’t know which one is a higher priority. This reminds me of work projects. When you are working with many groups on a product and everyone has something they want done and you only have so many resources you have to set priorities. Inevitably when you ask them each to prioritize their individual requests they almost always say, “They’re all High Priority. They are all #1.”
When I think about the task of prioritize I was looking for a good image to help identify what we often go through. The proverbial statement, “You can’t see the forest for the trees” came to mind and I chose the image above. When we start working on our goals we often have a hard time of seeing the forest for the trees. This is especially true if we have multiple goals we are working on at one time.
