PRIORITIES

In a summary of priorities in your everyday life, I encourage you to list, in your own words and order, the things, people, or events that are the most pressing priority for you. After examining your list, make a second list while imagining the worst case scenario that might occur in your life. Compare the two lists and re-evaluate the first list. Are they the same? Are the things you hold most dear to your heart still at the top of the lists? All these are things for which only you can know the answer, but they will impact your life, relationships, and business.

I challenge each of you to make priority setting an intricate part of your everyday world. Each day categorize the activities that need to be completed, and place them in order of importance. Only you can do this for your given situation! In planning for tomorrow, do not neglect today! Today is valuable since there are exactly the same number of hours in it as there is in tomorrow. Successfully dealing with the short term today prepares one to reach the long-range goals of tomorrow.

Whatever amount of time we are allowed to live in this life we must live it to the fullest, look for the good in each and every person that comes your way. *3) The sky is big and blue.* You’ll never be too old to change the ideas that you have, nor too old to implement them after you have a good one. So... what if the first attempt fails. Try again another way. That's how the successful have become successful. By giving an idea a different perspective.

Farmers are notorious for being pessimistic; I challenge each and every one of you here to become an optimist. First of all, it is a challenge, and farmers thrive on challenges, or you would not be in the business you are in. Secondly, it will make you a better person. Last of all, you might be surprised how many people it will rub off on. They will wonder why you have become Mr/Ms Positive instead of Mr/Ms Negative.

But then, the most important part of this entire plan, is DON’T WORRY about it. Worry never changes anything... action does. Lay it down and go on. All good things come to those who wait, and that is what we are basically doing in life... waiting.
