What we choose to prepare for exposes our priorities. If something is truly important to us, we’ll take the time to prepare for it. And if we say it’s important and yet don’t prepare, how important can it really be?
As a new business owner, people will mention to me that they’d like to start their own business one day and yet they are doing nothing to prepare for it. Without preparation, it won’t happen.
There are those who want to retire early and yet fail each month to put money away to properly prepare.
An individual may say that he doesn’t want to take daily medication but won’t prepare for maintaining his health through exercise and nutrition.
So what is important enough to you to prepare for it? Want to be a corporate vice president one day? What are you doing to prepare? Want to own your home outright? What steps are you taking to prepare for that? Want to be healthy when you’re 80? How are you preparing for that today?
No judgment here, simply pointing out that preparing, prioritizing and importance work together. If you aren’t prioritizing preparations, then perhaps it – whatever IT is – isn’t as important to you as you thought.
