Quote of the Day 20090404

“The key is not to prioritize what is on the schedule, but to schedule your priorities.” — Stephen Covey, Author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and Speaker

This sounds so simple, but really think about it. By scheduling those things that are most important, our priorities we can make some amzing transformation in our lives. Schedule that date night with your significant other weekly. Schedule your exercise time. Schedule some time to just be alone and think. Schedule the time to work on your part time business. Of course this assumes that you know what your priorities are, do you?
