My bracket is busted.  Yep, busted in the first round.  I reforecast my bracket, only so that the teams I picked to win, would seemingly be marked for heartbreaking loss.  Who’s number 1?  I have no idea.

Ever feel like your priorities in life are more confusing than the first round of upsets in an NCAA bracket?  Sometimes, it seems like we have so, many ‘things to do’ and demands on our time, that we are working harder and harder everyday and getting farther and farther from the things that we really want in life.

Here’s a way that I ‘ve found for prioritizing your goals (and activities) that seems to help people make the most of their time. 

List out your dreams for a life well lived, goals for this year or things that you feel you need/want to do.  Then put your goals into the Tournament Bracket, one goal, one space on the bracket.  Then do a single elimination playoff for each bracket. The goal that wins, advances to the next round. Then determine the winner of winners, and so on…continue this process until you have identified the #1 priority in your life.

So, what is the criteria for determining what goals ‘win’ and advance in the tourney?  Its really pretty simple.  I’ve found three criteria for prioritizing your goals:

1. If accomplishing this goal allows you to live your purpose, or calling

2. If accomplishing this goal allows you to develop or utilize a strength or particular skill, talent

3. If accomplishing this goal would help you achieve greater balance in life

Determine which goal wins and advances based on the degree of fullfillment of the above criteria. 

Once you have determined Who’s Number 1, then ask yourself, what will you do today, this week, this month to advance that goal in your life.  Are you spending time, effort and resources on things that are not important?   What needs to happen?  Then, DO it!

Have your employees been missing a lot of work lately?

Here are  a few of the most outrageous excuses employees have heard for being late to work:

  • My husband thinks it’s funny to hide my car keys before he goes to work.
  • I walked into a spider web on the way out the door and couldn’t find the spider, so I had to go inside and shower again.
  •  I got locked in my trunk by my son.
  • My left turn signal was out so I had to make all right turns to get to work.
  • A gurney fell out of an ambulance and delayed traffic.
  • I was attacked by a raccoon and had to stop by the hospital to make sure it wasn’t rabid.

Ever feel like doing whatever you wanna do?

According to Steven Covey we will find success if we are willing to “Subordinate the things you dislike doing to your greater purpose.” In other words sometimes doing whatever we wanna do, may not be what needs to be done to live out our purpose in life.

Here are a couple more great quotes on purpose:

  • If a man hasn’t discovered something that he will die for, he isn’t fit to live. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
  • Having thus chosen our course, without guile and with pure purpose, let us renew our trust in God, and go forward without fear and with manly hearts. Abraham Lincoln
  • · If you don’t know where you’re going, it doesn’t matter if your alarm doesn’t go off in the morning. Denis Waitley
  • I have always recognized that the object of business is to make money in an honorable manner. I have endeavored to remember that the object of life is to do good. Peter Cooper
  • ·         Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity. Horace Mann
  • ·         I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavor. Henry David Thoreau
  • Only a life lived for others is the life worthwhile. Albert Einstein
  • What is the meaning of human life, or of organic life altogether? To answer this question at all implies a religion. Is there any sense then, you ask, in putting it? I answer, the man who regards his own life and that of his fellow creatures as meaningless is not merely unfortunate but almost disqualified for life. Albert Einstein
  • Only he is successful in his business who makes that pursuit which affords him the highest pleasure sustain him. Henry David Thoreau
  • The worst days of those who enjoy what they do are better than the best days of those who don’t. Jim Rohn
