I do not like prioritizing. I hold many many roles, and if I were to take one priority from each role, I would have about a dozen things to rank in order of most important to least.
The idea has never made sense to me. Life is too circumstantial to have a rank like that. My internal algorithm gets way too confused balancing all the things.
I decided to try to approach my priorities like a pie chart. Each priority takes a certain percentage, and adding all of them up equals 100%. At the end of the week or month, I’d like the time I spent on those priorities to equal those percentages.
The idea is still rough but it is feels like a better way to take care of what’s important to me.
