Welcome to before breakfast a production of iHeartRadio.

Good morning. This is Laura.

00:00:42 before breakfast podcast today's tip is to stop rolling things over from one week to the next either do it or be done with it for good.

I know a lot of before breakfast with stars make weekly priority list. This is smart, but many people soon notice something as one listener recently wrote in I find that I am transferring some of the same priorities over week-to-week and never doing them even though I feel very busy.

Best listener wondered if perhaps this was her indirect way of telling herself that these things weren't her real priorities.

I think she's made a good inside hear plenty of things sound smart in theory. If we had infinite time and infinite energy sure. We tackle them. We also probably get to them if something suddenly made them rise up the priority list. If someone said she'd give you $100,000 as soon as you finished that book proposal. Well, I am guessing that you get to it.

Absent that when we keep rolling stuff over week-to-week the most likely explanation is that we don't really want to do them and if it isn't something like your taxes that do in fact have to happen. That's fine.

Expectations are infant time is finite.

We are always choosing. So all we can really do is choose well.

Now is that gets your hackles up? No, I really do want to paint my bathroom, even though I rolled it over for 10 weeks. Now then give yourself an ultimatum either. It happens this week or doesn't happen. Now. I am sure that this week is busy, but come on life is always busy. There will never be a perfect week. We're all the stars aligned and you will gleefully paint your bathroom without a care in the world. So absent that you can decide to do it now or decide not to do it.

If you choose the ladder well great. There's great peace to be achieved and simply acknowledging that you will not be doing something. You aren't going to return that email because it really isn't worth your time. You aren't going to reach out to that person your friends suggested because you just don't have the capacity to manage that new potential relationship. You are not going to research archery classes for your kids because they don't really care enough and neither do you?

Why is people have pointed out that our calendars really are our priorities you can say something is a priority. But if there is no time to voted to it, then it probably isn't you can do various exercises to find your true priorities, but time tracking is probably the best way when stuff rules over week-to-week. It most likely just isn't making the cut.

So it goes do it now or don't do it that way you'll know for sure.

In the meantime, this is Laura. Thanks for listening. And here's to making the most of our time.
