Realigning Priorities

No doubt about it, the Coronavirus has pushed the pause button on our daily lives around the world! People are told to stay home, hunker down, and avoid what was considered normal routine just a short while ago.

While the majority of us are eager to getting back to the way things were, I also feel this is a great time to slow down and take a long look at what’s truly important in life.

Stephen Covey had it right when he said, “The key is not to prioritize what’s on the schedule, but to schedule your priorities”!

We have to be intentional in this, because too often we allow our schedules to dictate our day. By scheduling our priorities, we order our own lives and control what gets our utmost attention.

If you are one of the many who are not going to work, meetings, appointments, sporting events, movies, and/or restaurants…forced to stay home with your family – breathe it all in while you can. Connect with your spouse and kids during this time and analyze, truly analyze, life before lockdown and the opportunities you have right now to create wonderfully meaningful memories!

My hope is that when this is all over, and it will be before long, the whole experience will have been a time of reprioritization for us…a blessing in disguise, if you will.

By realigning our priorities, we will come out of this with our priorities in order! Take care of yourselves and your loved ones, everybody.
