I love asking myself this question. Why?
- Helps me figure out what to do next. I end up more productive and effective.
- Keeps me mindful of what’s truly important, which leads to a healthier perspective.
- Enables me to make better decisions by allocating resources where they’re needed.
I’m not perfect at this, not by a long shot. And of course answering the question correctly isn’t necessarily easy. But I do find that when I tend to do my best, it’s because I managed to focus on doing the right things.
Asking myself “What matters most?” is the start of that process.
