Priorities in Our Own Lives
Each one of us was born with a purpose in life and it’s up to us to find out what it is by having our very own priorities in life. There are so many of us who can’t prioritize our own mission because we have other priorities which we assume are more important than others at this point in our own lives.
Nicolette Pizzitola (Career Strategist and Compass Point Associates CEO) once said in a TV chat online at Today that “Being honest with yourself about the realities ….. will mean having to prioritize well.” And how true that is, no matter what stage you are in your career or your life. Through the years your priorities changes and now is the time that you have become the main priority in your own life not somebody else.
What do you really want to do right now? What are your priorities in life and what can be done to put them in their right order?
This is now and that was then. Your own priorities change with the stages in your life. You can have priorities before that are of no relevance at this point in time. You can have these priorities that are more important now more than ever. You have to organize them and make do with the realities of what resources you have to get them done.
You can have different priorities in life depending on what stage you are in right at this very moment.
If you are in college now, you would like to finish your studies in your chosen career, then concentrate on it and make sure that you have all your priorities in order to graduate. Then prepare yourself to get a job after you have graduated and successfully fulfilled your dream career. After your graduation, finding a job would be your next priority and developing your career to the fullest extent by accepting all the challenges that come with it, then work your way up the ladder of success.
And if you have been working on a job for so many years, then you realize that you need a career change and get that job you have always dreamed of. It’s time to get a new job, a new boss and new challenges. You might want to go back to school again and learn new skills or upgrade your present skills, so that you can get into a better career or a promotion in your present job or maybe become an entrepreneur and be your own boss.
Whatever you decide to broaden your horizon, you really have to prioritize well. Even dealing with your own lifestyle needs some priorities and live within your means. You should realize that changing careers is not an easy task. Then again you have to change your priorities if you plan to do that.
Different people have varied priorities and you make your own depending on what you deem is of importance to you right now in your own life. Now is the time to get your priorities well-organized. And when you do, it will be to your advantage and your own life will probably be smooth sailing from hereon. So whatever you decide to do in your life now will have to be prioritized! Do it carefully with intelligence and wisdom. It’s your life and it depends on how you want to live your priorities.
