Whether you are striving for peak performance as an organization or individual, or whether you are working hard to earn a college athletics scholarship, it is important to take time to reflect on priorities.

A priority is something very important to your life. It gives focus to your life. It is something with value that shapes your life, for better or worse, the rest of your life. It claims your time, energy and resources. A priority is chosen by you or set by outside circumstances. The world will ask who you are. If you don’t know, it will tell you. You have to stand for something.

When it comes to priorities, here are three questions:

* What do you think about?
* Where do you spend your money?
* Where do you spend your time?

To be successful in priorities, you have to bring together all three of your capacities:

* Imagination – imagine possibilities that will come from your priorities.
* Intelligence – Use your ability to think and plan.
* Will – You must resolve to seek your desired goals. This comes back to stoking the fire within (rah rah!!)

As you reflect on 2010 priorities, tell yourself, “I have the power to establish priorities that will direct my life!”

In the future, reflect on your priorities and determine two things:

* What you will improve?
* What you will eliminate?
