How to Choose Real Priorities

How do you choose real priorities (rather than taking on other people’s false emergencies, or projects that don’t really move the needle)? In this video, I share the 7 evaluative questions I use to decide on what matters most.

This clip is from High Performance Academy, my 4-day seminar.

Fave quote: “Will this help you lead? When people say ‘Brendon, I’m trying to choose priorities’, they’re often thinking so myopically for themselves. I want you to see yourself as a leader of your family. I want you to lead your family as if you were thinking about how Martin Luther King led the Civil Rights Movement. I want you to think of leading your team like a John F. Kennedy led us to the moon. I want you to think about those people who you serve as if you were that bright light in the darkness that they needed just then. When you do that, your priorities shift a little bit more. You have more of a service mindset.”
