Priorities vs. Options

In a previous post, we focused on the fact that non-priorities can be detrimental to progress. We have to clear them out of our minds and out of our way. That leaves us with priorities.

A common pitfall I see is confusing priorities with options. Just because you have a top priority, it doesn't mean your other priorities are now options--they may still be priorities and need to be tackled now.

If we can remove the non-priorities out of our way, that frees us up to focus on the critical issues, tasks and opportunities. That should clear our minds a little, and it ensures that we find some way to make sure every priority is handled successfully, not just the top one or two.

In a challenging economy we don't really have a choice as to which priorities to focus on.
