Probably the best part of getting older is the sense of patience we’ve developed towards the goals we set: Where we want to go with our lives becomes much more important than how fast we get there. How we prioritize our time seems to be aligning with what we know is important to be doing with it.
Stress levels rise when we somehow disconnect with this innate wisdom of knowing the difference between what’s really urgent (or not) vs what is more important to be spending time on — or with whom…and this includes you! Satisfaction, health and well-being improve when we spend time on things that may be less urgent, but are really more important to us.
We all deal with being chained to seemingly urgent “must dos”: mail, bills, work, those that require care, and zillions of responsibilities. I won’t list the “important things” because those are highly personal to every individual. Yet prioritizing — between what is urgent vs. important — absolutely raises life satisfaction. Acting on our important, but not necessarily urgent choices raises our spirits. Regardless of our responsibilities, prioritizing our vision, values, principles, conscience, focus & plans is at the root of our sense of peace we feel through each passing year.
Now is simply our time to be sure that our daily choices and actions are prioritizing important vs. the seemingly urgent (but maybe not so) for greater peace, progress and harmony within ourselves so we are living the life we want to know we lived.
