How To Focus On Your ‘Right’ Priorities

The word ‘right’ for me means right-brain, which translates to intuitively honoring the optimal choice or investment of time and energy. The right priorities are not always the obvious priorities.

In fact, you may think you need to focus on something but find yourself drawn to something else – afterward, you realize that you weren’t in the mood to do the first one which would have meant you were pushing for it and that makes everything hard.

Humans have a basic need for variety, but they also have a need for stability. The way that I recommend we balance these two needs for our best focus is to have a ‘shopping list’ of things to get done, and then when you have time, look at your list. The first priorities are any that have deadlines (or life lines, as I prefer to call them). If there is a time commitment, that is what needs to be handled first.

From there, if you have time that you can put into something you choose, make sure you have your list handy and then do what’s called ‘eye dowsing’ – see what jumps out at you first. Whatever you see or notice first is generally where the natural energy is most intense or flowing, so that will be the priority that will be your next ‘right’ choice to take action on.

By honoring the energy of what is ‘right’ for you in right sequence and right timing, you can create a systematic flow that may defy the mind’s literal organization and that opens up to enhanced opportunities.
