What matters? What really matters? It's a good question that I am currently pondering. I can say that something is important to me, but if I don't spend time on it, is it really? I mean, a good night's sleep means a lot to me but still I grabbed my phone after I was in bed and ready to go to sleep to create this little image.
I'm pretty much 100% sure that I'm not the first person to say this out loud or write it down, but this is what bubbled up to me as I was telling my brain to wind down and go to sleep. While thinking about all the things I didn't get done and all the things I say I want to get done, I realized that maybe I need to check my priorities.
Because if I say I want to do a thing but don't put any time or effort into that thing? I have to call bullshit on myself. So, here's to reorganizing our priorities and spending time on what matters. I don't prioritize the things I say I want, so why does my brain tell me that I want them?
There seems to be a disconnect for me between my brain and my actions, the things I prioritize. If I really wanted to run a half marathon, I'd commit more time to my running program. If I really wanted to write that book, to get that job, to lose that weight then the actions necessary to get there need to be a priority. Surely I'm not the only one?
So, here's to actively prioritizing the things that matter—even if that means getting up in the middle of the night to create a reminder in the form of a meme to write about your priorities the next morning.
Oh, I also made this one.
Because sometimes I need to be more direct with myself.
