It’s very easy to become overwhelmed when you need or want to accomplish something. A task or objective might seem out of reach because of the many details involved. As a highly sensitive person, can you relate to this feeling?
Four months ago, I was faced with the daunting task of being the executor of my mother’s estate. There were many tasks that needed to be done. I thought, how am I going to this? My first reaction was, what is the most important thing for me to immediately do?
I had not done this before, so I needed to research, and ask knowledgeable people about the steps to take. I’m pleased to say that I was able to settle most of the details in the period of time that I had planned.
The secret of getting things done is to set priorities. Do the most important thing first, and then go down the list to the next most important. Setting priorities is the only way to make progress in any area of your life. Whether you’re organizing your home, or deciding what you want to do with your time and life. What is important to you? This will determine what you want to focus on.
Setting priorities will cut down on stress. You’ll have a clearer mind, be more productive, and be in control of the project.
Do you set priorities in your life, or do you focus on the needless details that hinder your progress? I’m interested in any thoughts or comments that you have.
