Our upbringing has taught us so many valuable and vital things with the foremost being that a hard worker can achieve anything in life no matter the circumstances. The thought was alright when we were in the high school only focusing towards getting straight As but when real life knocks, these notions go straight out of the window. There’s no such thing as a fully dedicated person. There are so many things in a life that you wish to achieve all at the same time but let’s be practical here, no one can actually be a full time devoting parent, take care of kids, handle the household, learn new things, manage a full time job, meet the deadlines and spend time with family.
Maybe there are many that think they are doing just fine and managing what the life throws at them but are they true to themselves? The main culprits who have planted this notion inside everybody’s minds are the digital media. They have intentionally shown us so many make-believe stories of multitasking men and women that we often feel that we are the ones that are not working hard enough to have it all just like them.
It is difficult for people who are always winning in the races to think that they have to sacrifice something to make the other thing better. Accepting the truth is far more hard than acknowledging the hurdles one have to face and what’s the outcome? Remorse and remorse only. Satisfaction is a word that is over “hyped”. What does it exactly means? Is it just about accomplishing one goal at a time and abandon the one that takes away your peace of mind or something entirely opposite.
Maintaining a balance in life is far more important than achieving everything you ever dreamed of. You cannot manage a new project for a company abroad if you have an ill parent at home or a demanding newborn and you cannot be a full-time parent and expect to put your kids through a private school.
Life is more about abandoning something crucial in the name of something that you can’t afford to lose and allowing your conscience to adjust with the fact. You cannot achieve everything in one go and let yourself think that you can is extensively sabotaging your own happiness.
All these things usually come to a halt when we talk about priorities. It is the word everyone need to have in their dictionary, not just to remember but to practice in real life in order to keep sane. Thinking carefully about what to prioritize at what time in your life is the ultimate way to succeed and have a meaningful happy life. Loving something or someone so relentlessly will give you a motive in a life and motives derives priorities. There are some amazing quotes I once came across once at Love Quotes and SMS on Maxabout and I tell you, there are exactly what my words fail to describe. They give me the sense of self-love and gratitude and how to prioritize my time amidst the work and family.
There are 7 dimensions in life that a person needs to understand and prioritize accordingly. He has to understand his limits on managing all the seven at a single time and let go of some in order to keep the balance in life. Firstly, check out the dimensions:
Everyone has to prioritize every dimension on the basis of what’s important and vital at that particular time. You have to prioritize the amount of time you have to give to a particular dimension. You have to tackle the challenges associated with each in order to be sane and experience life in all its sheer glory. Making a trade with one dimension in term of other, you need to be clear in your mind and not hurt yourself in the process.
