The Four Things That Matter

In my quest for more focus it was recommended to me that I identify the four things in my life that really matter the most to me. Beyond those four, it was said, the rest "is just filler".

Once I have identified what matters, my next task is to clearly look for the actions needed over six months to achieve greatness in each area. Then daily I should look at what small thing I can do toward accomplishing my goals.

How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.

Here is my list:

1. Serving my wife and kids as the best husband and father I can be.

What is the next step to be done today to lead me to that goal?

2. Doing the best job I can for my employer.

What is the next step to be done today to lead me to that goal?

3. Promoting my book to national recognition.

What is the next step to be done today to lead me to that goal?

4. Staying fit and being healthy.

What is the next step to be done today to lead me to that goal?

What four things matter to you? Remember, the rest is just filler.

Have A Great Day.
