The key is not to prioritize what's on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.
Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option.
If the ladder is not leaning against the right wall, every step we take just gets us to the wrong place faster.
You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage—pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically, to say “no” to other things. And the way you do that is by having a bigger “yes” burning inside. The enemy of the “best” is often the “good.
