0019: The Multi-tasker's Guide to Prioritizing Your Life

As I’ve challenged you to make some changes in your life, you may have found yourself asking, “How am I going to fit that in?” You’re already juggling too many balls. Something will have to go … but what? We have to choose our battles. Where will we reap the most benefit from applying our resources? There is a key that we can use to help us sort this out. We’re going to apply the Pareto principle as we consider the changes we want to make. We need to identify the actions to take so that we can re-prioritize our life for big results.

In this episode, you will:

  • Learn about and understand the 80/20 principle
  • Identify aspects of their lives that require the most dedication and effort to make way for change
  • Set priorities and stick to them
