Live by Priorities instead of Demands

By
Real Estate Agent with Hot Springs 1st Choice Realty

As I started my day off today, I ran across a great quote from the daily devotional .... "Live by Priorities instead of Demands", and thought how fitting for a Monday morning and a great quote to live by.  I loved it so much, that I added it to my list of positive quotes that I look at each day posted on the face of my computer.  

It seems that so often our daily lives are effected by the annoying quote "the Squeaky Wheel always get the Oil".  Have you ever noticed that when you work in a position of customer service, you find yourself spending a greater amount of your time catering to that unreasonable customer just because that one is always "squeaking" and demanding your time and energy?  Then you find yourself getting thrown off track from your scheduled to-do list and from focusing on your best clients and things that count.

Today is a good day to start living by priorities instead of demands! ... Paulia Kennedy

Excellent quote! I love it and it so true about what you say about the squeaky gear getting the oil. I will try to "live by priorities instead of demands". Thanks for posting.

Jeff and Paulia - Great quote!  Who was the author? I am a big believer in doing affirmations.  I try to spend 15 to 20 minutes every morning doing them to get my mind in a positive state and ready to face the world.  Your quote is so right - so often the urgent squeeze out the important!

Hey Laura,  Thanks for the feedback!  I can't remember the author, but I believe it was from "Simple Truths".  I try to read about 3 spiritual and motivational type stories from different sources each morning and you're right ... it really helps start the day off right!

I agree  "Live by Priorities instead of Demands" because all the things around you can sometimes but to some it's always consume the time, money, love and etc.. if we're not careful about our ego, needs than wants and wants always makes the first as I see it..
