Many times it feels like I float from fire to fire. Other times I decide to put on blinders to the needs and unfinished tasks around me.
Deciding what matters most can be easy.
What task carries the greatest, long-term consequences if not completed?
Make a cause and effect chart for each item. For example; completing a project for work on time is important but the long-term effect of eating poorly and not exercising has a greater impact on your life. If you are hospitalized for health issues that could have been prevented, that project on your desk right now is going to be done by someone else.
