Developing Working Priorities

Tuesday, August 05, 2008

The most important question you can ask yourself at this juncture is, "What am I concerned about, and how much is this concern worth to me?" We are talking about values, and the question is so important because our values are often unconscious. If you believe this is not so, record an honest time log for one week. See if your hour-by-hour and minute-by-minute deeds match your image of yourself. If they do, put this book down or give it to a friend. You are an anti-career person.

If your time log, on the other hand, shows that you are scattering energy, wasting time, filling pages with to-do lists and not crossing them off, or more importantly, if your day does not make you feel that you are nourishing the soul - both your soul and the soul of the world - then it is time to act. It is time to become aware of the core beliefs that are actually dictating your daily life.

  • What is really important in terms of how you spend your days and nights?
  • What has empowered the basic movement of your life so far?
  • What are the passions that rule you?
  • Who are the gods and goddesses at whose altar you sacrifice your time and energy?

Until you have done substantial investigation here, do not enter into the activities of decision making and prioitizing. First you must see where your attention has been focused, and why.

I thought I knew the answers to all of those questions - until today.

Now, I'm not at all sure.

In the "real" world of the way I live, it appears to be true that what is really important to me is the approval and the appreciation of others. And that what has empowered the basic movement of my life so far is a continual search for ways to be needed and valued by others. So, clearly the passions that rule me revolve around me being good enough to be needed and valued by others... and as to the Gods and Goddesses... well... that would be you ... and you ... and you ... and you...


So... Now that I have this information, I'm not at all clear as to what exactly to do about it or with it.
