Setting Priorities At Work

Most of us have a million different things fighting for our attention and for scraps of our very limited time. It can be really difficult to sort through our list of priorities and figure out where we can best spend our time to achieve real progress toward the goals we’ve set for ourselves.

In this week’s episode of the Pursuing Freedom podcast, I want to talk to you about the importance of measuring your progress and about how doing so can help you identify where to spend your time most effectively. Setting priorities at work isn’t enough… they have to be the right priorities backed by the right energy. Otherwise, you’re just stumbling around in the dark and hoping you’re doing something right. Planning ahead is so important.

Every day when you get out of bed, you’re faced with the choice of what to do with your time. That decision-making process can be a huge drain on your energy and your enthusiasm! That’s why it’s so important to look back on your progress and look ahead to your goals to keep yourself motivated and passionate.

Measuring Your Progress Matters

In many areas of our lives, measuring and tracking our progress comes naturally. For example, let’s say you’ve decided you want to lose weight. You wouldn’t try to do that without periodically checking your scale, because you need to know where you started and where you are now so that you can adjust your strategies to keep moving forward.

The same thing happens in our work; we can’t get to where we want to go if we don’t measure our progress! Not only does this help give us a motivation boost and an opportunity to celebrate our wins, it also helps us get clarity so that when we’re setting priorities at work, we’re focusing on the right things that will really make a difference.

In this week’s episode of the podcast, I discuss a helpful tool I’ve created that my own team uses to keep us motivated, inspired and moving forward! The Set For Success Planner tool is something I’m delighted to share with you on my website in the resources section, and it really has made a huge difference for how my team and I tackle our week. While you’re there, check out all the other awesome tools and resources we’ve made available!

I’m also extremely excited to announce that I’m in the process of creating a Pursuing Freedom planner, which will have daily habits, activities and tools to help you get clear on what truly excites and motivates you and what to focus on to make a massive impact on your business while helping you add value to the people around you! I’m so eager to share this with you, and I’ll have more info about the Pursuing Freedom planner and how you can get one soon!

Remember: you can’t create something that you can’t measure. Getting clear about where you were, where you are, and where you want to go is a crucial part of the journey!
