            "Make a List of Your Personal Priorities"  
      
      "I'll warn you in advance that this strategy can be humbling,
but ultimately very helpful. It involves taking a careful look at those
personal things that you feel are most important to you. 

        Once you decide what they are, write them down on a sheet
of paper and put the list away for a week or two.

      For example, you might create a list that looks something like
this: 1. pleasure reading, 2. exercising, 3. volunteering my time, 
4. spending time with my family or close friends, 5. meditation,
6. spending time in nature, 7. getting organized, 8. writing in my
journal, 9. trying something new. 10. eating healthily, 11. traveling.

      Here's the hard part; after some time has gone by, take out your
list and read it to yourself.  Now, think back honestly over the past
week or so, back to the time you wrote the list.  

      How have you spent your time, other than the time your were 
working?   if your actions over the past few weeks were consistent
with your list, congratulations!  You are in a tiny minority  and my 
only suggestion is to encourage you to keep it up.  My guess is
that you are fairly satisfied in your life, and that satisfaction spills
over into your work life.

       If however, you look at your list and realize (as I did the first time
I did this exercise) that a staggering percentage of your time was
spent doing other things, then you've got work to do. 

      To varying degrees, we ignore that which we insist is more
important in favor of things that seem pressing or are simply more 
convenient.  

      Unfortunately, life isn't going to suddenly accommodate us with
fewer demands or reward us with the time we wish we had to do
these important things.  If we don't line up our behavior with our
priorities, it will never happen.

      A friend of mine taught me a powerful lesson that I always try to 
remember.  He said, "In reality, you vote with your actions, not your 
words."  

       You can see why this exercise is potentially so important to the
quality of your life.  When you're busy and working hard, tired and
overwhelmed, it's easy to postpone your priorities. 

      Once you open your eyes to the pattern, however, it's fairly easy
to change.  You can begin to make minor adjustments.  Remember,
you're the one who wrote the list of priorities. 

      You certainly have the power to implement them.  I encourage you
to write your list today.  It really can create a whole new beginning."
