How to not let what’s urgent get in the way of what’s important

Hi, I’m Miriam Castilla and welcome to the Manifesting Playground for Soulful Women in Business – where we practice the art and science of Effectology to help you have more money, more time, the easy way… without all the extra hustle!
Today we’re going to talk about urgent versus important, because as you know, each day there’s a bunch of stuff that’s really urgent for you to get done and then there’s also those things that you know are really important – important for your business, important for your well-being, important for your overall happiness levels in life.
The first thing to realize is that the urgent stuff will always be there.
It never really goes away and it also screams the loudest for your attention so it’s really easy to go through the day and just be caught up in all this urgent, urgent, urgent, urgent stuff – stuff that at the end of the day is not actually all that important.. And then you feel like you didn’t really get anything done and you didn’t really move forward.
Now, the second thing to remember is that you will never get everything done.
Your to-do list will always keep on growing and basically, you’ll just never catch up and you need to make your peace with that. So what that means is you need to be even more deliberate with what you spend your precious time on, because you only have 24 hours in every day and I’d like for you to spend some of that sleeping, having fun, chilling out and all that good stuff.
The third thing to really keep in mind is that it’s actually the important stuff, not the urgent stuff that makes the biggest difference overall.
That’s the stuff that changes your life. That’s the stuff that takes you and your business up to the next level… next level of income, next level of clients, next level of people you can reach, next level of joy and happiness and freedom in your life.
It’s the important stuff which isn’t usually screaming urgent at you, THAT’S what will actually make the difference.
So, the bottom line as with pretty much everything I teach is that it is all up to you.
It is up to you to manage your time, manage your attention and really be discerning about what is just urgent – but not really important – and what is actually really important and does need to get done. And then you choose and decide from there.
