I’ve realized that “nice” isn’t good enough for me. Career is a massive part of one’s life, a massive part of the legacy we leave behind. I don’t want to spend 2,000 hours every year doing “nice” work. When I’m lying on my deathbed, many years from now, I don’t want my great grandson Jimmy asking what my work life was like, only to respond, “Eh, it was alright. Now run along, Johnny. I want to watch a Seinfeld rerun one last time.”
Today I’m going to share the technique I use for prioritizing my life. I have been using this method for about 18 months now and it has proven to be very effective. It is not my own original method; all credit goes to Steve Pavlina, who I first heard describe it in his Truth and Awareness podcast.
