Prioritizing is hard. It's hard as an entrepreneur. It's hard in a corporate job. It's hard in a marriage. It's hard as a parent. It's just hard.
I have been working recently to create more margin in my life. This means, I say 'no' more often, so that I can say 'yes' when it really counts. It also means that I have to be more thoughtful about what gets done now, later or not at all. Right now, I'm basing a lot of those decisions, at least in part, on one simple question:
What is the question you least want to answer/fear most?
The odds are, that is the thing that most needs needs doing. Are you building a business? That may be your biggest vulnerability. It may be the weakest point in your marriage. What do you think? I'm sure there's a hole in this logic, but it's been working for me.
