Habit 3 Put First Things First

Have you ever tried to do something but you don’t do it in time? That’s why you should use Habit 3 Put first things first.

One Saturday afternoon, I was at my house and my neighbor came to the door. She asked me if I would clean her yard for $45. The only catch was that it had to be done by Tuesday. Since it was Saturday, that gave me plenty of time to do it……at least that’s what I thought.Screen Shot 2016-05-02 at 1.50.00 PM

The next day I was playing games and I thought about the job. It was only Sunday, so i thought cleaning the yard could wait another day. So I just kept on playing my games!

When I went to school the next day, I noticed my neighbor was talking about how he wanted a new watch, But he needed money.

On Tuesday I completely forgot to clean my neighbors yard until I went to school and my other neighbor had a new watch. I asked him where he got it. He said he cleaned his neighbor’s yard and got $45. “He took my job!” I thought. “You shouldn’t have put it off!” I scolded myself.

This story is a prime example of why you should always use Habit 3 “Put first things first”.

The End!!!!!

For example, if you are fixing a computer, and you don’t know what tool to use to take out the graphics card. you could just leave it in there, but is that fixing it? No, you can figure out what tool to use and get the job done faster. See how being proactive can help you achieve your goal? I was goofing off at the beginning when writing this, but then I started to be proactive and I got it done.
