Where To Go From Here
- Make a list of goals for yourself. A renowned example of this is through the University of Florida Quarterback, Tim Tebow. Tebow will unashamedly tell anyone who asks what his priorities are: “faith, family, academics, football.”
- Look back over this past week. What primarily consumed your time and energy? Did this activity/project correlate with your priorities?
- What distracted you from living by your list of priorities? Why or how?
- Make an action plan for next week. What are some things that you know that you need to accomplish. Know that you have a test coming up? When will you carve out time to study? Need to wash your car? When will you schedule time to do it?
What would happen if you said “no” to the core distractor in your life for ten days? For me, that means not checking my Facebook for ten days. Seem like a long time? Honestly, it’s not. Just think of all the things that you can do by eliminating that distraction. After the ten days is over, you may not even want to engage in that activity as much! You just never know!
