TRIORITIES is about a life of focus, a life of balance, and a life that you endeavor to live well and enjoy along the way. Are you running from one task to the next but not enjoying any of it? Are you climbing ladders only to find the view from the top less than appealing? Then I challenge you to take a break from the treadmill of life to look at your life, your choices, your track record, and ultimately your future. Ask yourself; am I who I want to be? Am I all that God intended for me to be? Have I tried to be too many things, and failed to master any of them? If that simple evaluation brings you to a point of realization that maybe there might be a better way to do things then just maybe this is a plan for you to consider.
TRIORITIES involves simple logic that challenges you to take a three step process to evaluate life, develop a plan to become what you want to become, and then, implement that plan in your life. Consider the value of simplicity in setting priorities in a complex world. Consider simplicity from a standpoint of being focused on three areas of life that we truly need to properly invest ourselves in, and mange accordingly. The three priorities of the TRIORITIES lifestyle are God, Family and Work.
So considering this mature understanding of life, what does that say for guys like Einstein, Columbus, the Wright brothers, or many others that stepped out there to follow their dreams? Are they just plain dumb? Didn’t they know that their chances for success were limited? Didn’t they consider how many times they tried and failed? Didn’t they take into account that nobody else is doing it this way? Why didn’t they just accept what they had, and learn to live with it? Why did they persists in their silly dreams; high tech electronics…finding a new land on a world that was of all things round, flying above the earth? What foolish dreams, what a waste of time the world around them probably said. No doubt these guys felt the pressure. Not only did they boldly lay their dreams out there for their peers to see, but they also failed publicly in their quests. Yes, some of the greatest achievers in history had the greatest records of failure as well. Let’s face it; that is what accomplishment is all about. It’s about missing enough times first that you eventually learn what not to do, and subsequently what to do. Maturity should not be a curse that de-motivates us, and so makes us afraid to try. It should be an education process that prepares us for greater things by showing us what works, and just as important, what doesn’t.
So take a look at your history, at your maturing process. What’s your track record? Have you failed repeatedly? Have you even tried to do great things? Do you try to accomplish anything in life, do you have convictions and passions, or do you just go through the motions each day? And eventually, every day looks just like the last. Have you come to the point that your life resembles that of the family dog? Does your day basically follow the agenda below?
•Wake up. •Wash myself. •Eat. •Go to the place I go in the morning. •Eat again. •Go to the place I go in the afternoon. •Eat again. •Go to the place I go in the evening. •Sleep •Repeat
