One of my mentors insists that we can tell what's important to someone by watching two things:
- How they spend their time.
- How they spend their money.
3. How they spend their effort.
That revealing list of standards exposes our life priorities.
Two critical questions follow:
- Have we carefully assessed what is truly important enough to spend our finite resources on?
- Have we made the conscious (and difficult) resource allocation decisions toward that we have deemed important?
If we've not spent well, it's time for reassessment and/or changes in resource allocation.
