Don’t forget what’s important.

We’re all busy people, in a time that multi-tasking has become a way of life, and not just something we do at work to accomplish more. Every day no matter where we go and what we do, look around. Driving, eating, or even at the grocery store, look at how many people are on their phones. I’m guilty of it too, it’s such a convenient evil in this modern society.

As the children of today won’t learn the art of cursive handwriting in their schools, they learn how to use technology instead. The art of having some sort of dialogue and face to face conversation seems to be at a minimum.  It’s so much easier just to text someone a few words rather than actually call them on the phone and talk to them. But you miss so much, like hearing the fluctuations in a persons voice, the hesitation they have when answering, and the tone they have when speaking to you, all lost on the screen of your phone.

We all have different priorities in life, depending on our experiences and the place were are at in our current existence. Life can be confusing, so many choices, and so many possibilities. What do I do and where do I go from here? Some people have an education and others have not, however most of us need employment. A place that we can earn a living and hopefully enjoy what we do.

No matter where your at in this scenario, making a plan and taking action will be the only way to make change occur. If you get no results then readjust your action plan and try again. Protect yourself and your family by planning ahead, think about 5years down the road, even 10 or 20. What do you want your life to look like? Do you have a family, or plan too?

If you were to draw a diagram with a stairway that leads from where you are right now, to where you want to be, what would be listed on each step? Step one, graduate college, step two get a job, and it continues. The important thing is to try and be as specific with the steps as possible. Once you have done this then you have materialized what you want and how to get there, now all you have to do is follow the steps.

Remember what ‘s important to you, don’t lose yourself in the battle. You can always re-evaluate your plan and adjust it accordingly.
