Have you ever taken the time to write down what is important to you?
I have a list of Imperatives that I review at the beginning and end of each day. When I review them at the beginning of the day, I gain focus on what is important. When I review them at the end of the day I assess how focused my day was.
Here are my Imperatives:
- My spiritual, mental and physical health
- My wife
- My children and grandchildren
- Other family members
- Creative space
- Those I serve professionally
- Recovery community
Imperatives 1 through 4 are in order of importance. Imperatives 5 through 8 are interchangeable based upon what I am doing that particular day.
What’s important to you? What are your Imperatives?
Do the activities of your daily life reflect your Imperatives?
Matthew 6:33, “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
