The reason you don’t start that business or create another source of revenue is not that it's too hard or whatever other excuses you lined up. It’s because you haven’t made it a priority. When crap hits the fan, priorities pop up quickly.

When my fiancé complains about trash or laundry, it becomes a top priority ASAP. I did have time to do it earlier, but I put it off and didn’t make it a top priority. Now it is and now I get it done.

You need to prioritize your life. Select what needs to be done and when. It’s very important that we prioritize what needs to be done so we can maximize efficiency.

I got some awesome stuff going on Episode 19 coming up, nine more to go and I'll do 90 out of 90 in my 90 day challenge I put against myself, I'm gonna have a giveaway. Pretty sure I haven't figured out what I'm going to give away, but definitely gonna get some stuff away. So they still isn't this show great to have you on. The reason you don't start that business or created another source of revenue is not because it's too hard or whatever other excuse you lined up. It's because you haven't made it a priority when crap hits the fan priorities. Pupo quickly. So what? I mean by priority. So I've been learning a lot of Spanish here lately. In some days, I just will push it to the end of the day. So it's important to realize that in life we prioritize things. We prioritize what is over what, and some people are good at it. Some people aren't, and it's important that we look it. You know, it's kind of like looking at a bunch of task you have in front of you. Let's say you have five tests. Do you not these task out an order, or do you prioritise them first and see which is the biggest and which is the smallest or vice versa? What? How do you do it, and I think that prioritizing is very important. I actually do it so much to the point that I will neglect things at the bottom because things will keep arising at the top that are very important. And I'll just keep overlooking stuff the bottom. And that's something I need to work on personally. And you may do that, too. But, you know, it's important to realize that there are priorities in life. Like if I have, if somebody breaks her, let let's say my brother breaks his leg and I don't know. My work has a party going on. And if I mean which one is gonna come first? It's pretty obvious the broken leg. But sometimes it's not that obvious. Sometimes it's kind of like Okay, somebody needs to get paid, and I worked the payroll for people or B um, let's see, be John has an issue with his Yeah, you know, money he can't get through. It's obviously gonna be payroll because it's dealing with a larger amount of people as opposed to the one guy having an issue. So it's kind of like, you know, the trolley thing, where you you'd redirect the trolley to the four people or the one guy and that kind of pick, and that's prioritizing. And a lot of people don't do it. A lot of people just say I don't want to pick anything and that's not good because then what happens is I know it's one lady. She she gets super stressed, freaking out. She looks like she's lost. She looks, she just screaming at everybody and everything and and it's just, I mean, just awkward. And it's just like Lady, you gotta take a chill pill like prioritize some stuff and not having that ability to prioritize really makes her inefficient. And so it's kind of like, Wow, wow, you know, looking at this person from that perspective, it's crazy. Um, when my find out, when my fiance complains about trash or laundry, it becomes a top priority as soon as possible. I did not. I did have time to do it earlier in the day or the week, but I put it off and didn't make it a top priority. I kept saying, you know, Oh, he trash, whatever A next day, you know, uh, somebody's in your yellow me and I'm like Oh, Jesus Christ. And then I'm like, out there scrambling to get knocked out and do it. And, ah, it's not pretty is not a pretty picture, so definitely prioritizing and in making sure that you're knocking things that you're supposed to. And now when something is in my face, now it's a priority. But you don't want it to get to that level. So you kind of want to nip it in the butt, especially with your business. Let's say you have an employee that is not very good, not performing well. And if you keep ignoring that situation eventually something bad is gonna happen and you're gonna have to do something, um, to fix it. So some things that are small problems will eventually grow into larger problems if left unattended. And that is something I personally we need to focus more on, you know, definitely focus more on that. So just talking about ways we could get better, you need to prioritize your life, select what needs to be done and when. It's very important that we prioritize what needs to be done so we can maximize efficiency. It was very important, Um, you know, just like I said the story earlier, I would be doing everything around the house. Totally forget about the laundry I was supposed to do last night. And then boom, Here comes. Here comes Jessica Cilic. Why don't you do his laundry? I'm like, 00 Jesus. You know, And then I'm just kind of like it's like a dog with the tail under that legs, you know, you can't like Oh, my gosh, she's gonna kill me. But you know what? What is something that you have? And this is the action step for themselves. I'm gonna cut a little short today. But what is something that you have been putting on the back burner? That should actually be a high priority. What is that little festering bubble that's about to blow up in your face? What? What is that? You know, we need to identify that and you go take care of it. Don't let it keep simmering up, because eventually it's gonna hurt. You don't do that. Don't Don't be the one who's, you know, being yelled at because they didn't take out the trash or do the dishes. So don't be that guy. It's not fun being that guy? Um, yeah, a goofy show today, But thanks for listening. Hey, go ahead. Get on. My calendar ago. You, Ah, countrified that com forts. Last counter.
