“The key is not to prioritize what’s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.”

A Note: Lions, mice and Antelopes.

Have you ever seen a Lion killing a mouse?

A lion can actually capture, kill and eat a field mouse.

However, it turns out that the energy to do that is greater than the caloric content of the mouse.

So, if a lion spent his whole day hunting and eating field mice… it would slowly starve itself to death!

A lion cannot live on mice. Lions need antelopes or bigger animals.

While they take more speed and strength to capture and kill, once killed, they provide a huge feast for a lion and its pride.

A lion can live a long and happy life on a diet of antelope or bigger animals. But it will die chasing mice’.

Similarly, If you’re s all of your time and energy going after ‘field mice’, you may feel rewarded but it would be a short term one – look at the bigger picture

Set your goals accordingly.


One of important step to success is knowing your priorities.
