Episode 348 - How to Prioritize What Matters Most

Ep. 348

Spending long hours at work to support your lifestyle becomes a paradox if you are never present to enjoy that life. The time you spend with your spouse and kids is as important, if not more, than the benefits of a wealthy lifestyle. Still, it is not a matter of choice; it is not an either-or situation. It's about organization and planning.

In this episode, you'll learn why prioritizing what matters most is a life-changing decision to make. We look closely at one of the most powerful tools ever created to get the best out of every day: pre-week planning. We explain how to set it up the right way, create a powerful WHY that will work as fuel, and approach it properly from a personal and professional point of view.

Tune in to Episode 348 of Becoming Your Best, commit to pre-week planning, and see your life and the life of those who matter most to you improve weekly.
