Your Priorities Should Guide Your Plans - s3e24How do you decide? Well, your life mission should have something to say about what you do, but not everything!

That might not be true. Maybe you are in outer space, and then they would be made in a vacuum. Anyway, I was talking metaphorically. Never mind… In the paradigm of mission, goals, and objectives, there is a concept that has been latent in my mind over the years, but one that I have never discussed directly. That is the concept that there are different areas of our lives that afford different levels of priority. For instance, many people would say their personal health is more important than having a nice flower garden. On the other hand, putting food on the table for the family has probably a higher priority than does getting to the next level in a video game. Higher level priorities get first dibs on the time available. So, back to the mission, goal, objective concept. Agreeing that everyone's life includes priorities and different areas, I'd argue that within each area, there are sub-priorities. In the area of "family" getting a new TV might be a lower priority than getting a new hot-water heater. That accepted, we can move on to the actual point! Whenever an opportunity comes along, assuming it fits within the overall life mission you have established, it is necessary to examine the effect of the opportunity on the different areas of your life. If it hurts your family, but helps you with your on-line gaming friends, should you do it? But if it helps your family AND boosts your career, then maybe it is a better choice. Looking at the effect of something on the different areas of your life should be an integral part of making decisions. If it undermines one area while bolstering another, then the priorities you assign to those areas needs to direct what you decide.

No other party or agency is involved. NOTES AND HASHTAGS: #NoSmallCreator #inspiration In a world of social media and large, open space work areas, compliments in passing aren't uncommon. But, are they true? Similarly, supervisors are taught to encourage the good things instead of just criticizing the areas needing improvement. How can you tell if a word of encouragement or a compliment is true? How do you know that it is not just some obligatory gesture of kindness—and perhaps it is just the precursor than attempt to lure you into something! Two things offer evidence that compliments and words of encouragement are true. First off, does it come unexpected? Could the person who said it (typed it) have just as easily said nothing? The fact that they took the effort to stop you and say something (or go to the comments section and type something) is a good indicator that whatever they typed was something they believed. Secondly, is it specific? A passing "nice job!" comment could just be an effort toward them looking thoughtful and not a genuine attempt to encourage you. Sure, it's great to be told you did something well, but the lack of specificity leaves such a compliment open to doubt. However, if they say, "Wow! How you handled the customer's complaint about the packaging was really great!" there's a good chance that they really believe that. When someone pops up out of nowhere and offers you a compliment that is specific and relevant, there's a really good chance that it is true. AND, if you want someone to feel encouraged… Let them know what you think (specifically) at a time that it is not expected.

This video was created in conjunction with the Lowell High School Photography Club, Lowell, Indiana ############################### NOTES AND HASHTAGS: #NoSmallCreator #inspiration There are times when you actually don't need to write down your goals. Really. It starts when you fully, totally, entirely, completely understand your mission. You know the "whatever it is you are trying to do" so fully that there are circumstances that arise and the mission itself is enough to guide your actions. Consider an emergency room setting at a hospital. Taking care of patients is clearly a big part of the mission. So, keeping the walkways clear so that no one falls naturally follows the mission. There need not be a goal of "moving 10 things out of the aisle." The mission is strong enough that, when understood, it informs a host of related actions. A mission of wellness and health situationally informs food choices. A mission that includes being kind to others automatically guides actions when out in public, and a goal of smiling at eleven people is not needed. The mission, itself, is clear enough that smiling naturally occurs. Certainly, writing goals is necessary in many cases. But, there are also many cases where a strong and clear understanding of the mission is enough to fully guide decisions and behaviors.

If a journey is the metaphor for your life, then the purpose of the trip is your mission statement and the destination is a goal. The route you take is your plan, to carry the metaphor further. Whatever your purpose in life, your goals need to line up in such a way that, reaching the goals are steps toward fulfilling the purpose. Every goal—every thing you set out to accomplish in the specific—needs to fit with your general, overall purpose. Or purposes. A fulfilled life is a balance between numerous areas such as work/career, family, and recreation. If you want to be effective and successful, you need specific, measurable goals, and every goal needs to fit within the big picture. They need to work together to move you toward satisfying the demands of your mission. Know what it is you are trying to do—develop a clear, meaningful mission—then create goals you can work toward and achieve that move you in the direction of your purpose.
