In order to prioritize and get things done in a way that you actually feel like you’ve gotten things done, you want to recognize that the ultimate priority is you feeling good. If you don’t feel good, it won’t feel like you’ve gotten anything done no matter how much you do; you’d still just feel like you have so much more to do and like you haven’t gotten anywhere.
So the first step is to identify what you ultimately want to feel at the end of the day, at the end of the week, at the end of the month, at the end of the year, or whenever.
After you’ve already successfully prioritized things well and gotten done what you wanted to get done, how would you feel?
Perhaps you’d feel accomplished, successful, like you’re on the right track, like you’re making great progress, like you’ve gotten done everything you wanted to get done, like you’re really happy with yourself and the decisions you’ve made and the direction you’re going, etc.
Once you’re clear about what you’d like to feel, and you’re already imagining this and feeling it, then you can ask yourself how you would feel if you did this or that right now. If you imagine you would feel good after doing something at this time, do it. If you imagine you wouldn’t feel good after doing something at this time, don’t do it; instead come up with another suggestion to check with yourself about and see if it feels like you would feel good after doing it now. This is how you prioritize to get things done in a way that actually moves you forward toward your true aims and goals.
