Being successful in one area of your life, often means you are sacrificing in another. Most of us high-achieving, driven, busy professionals are amazing at being the best in what we do. But, in the process of becoming the best at what we do, we often sacrifice in some other important areas of our lives. Like our health and fitness, our relationships, and our happiness.

Before long, you are putting your needs on the back burner so that you can do more stuff for your business and for other people. You are working hard trying to do everything to please everyone and you are exhausted. But overworking yourself can have serious health complications.

A study from the University College of London found that people who worked more than 55 hours per week had a 13 percent greater risk of a heart attack and were 33 percent more likely to suffer a stroke, compared to those who worked 35 to 40 hours per week.

The pressure we put on ourselves to do more and be more, so that we can have more and keep up with the demands of work life and family life is exhausting. Have you ever found yourself feeling stretch so thin that you start saying things like, 'if I only had the time' or 'I don't have the time', when someone asks you to do something fun or even something for yourself?

It never feels like there is enough time to just be when you are always busy doing. A major sign of overworking includes having trouble relaxing and feeling like there's not enough time in the day to get everything done.

I once read a bumper sticker that said, "God put me on earth to accomplish a certain number of things, right now, I 'm so far behind that I will never die." That pretty much sums up how most of us are managing our time, our energy, and our lives. When you are trying to do everything, it is not long before you realize that you can't and you start to feel like a failure. And when you feel like you are failing, you and everyone around you suffers.

Think about how you feel being busy all the time. How is it effecting you and those around you? Are you in a constant state of stress & overwhelm? Are you impatient and frustrated? Do your relationships feel strained?

Instead of stressing yourself out trying to balance it all, empower yourself by choosing where to focus and be intentional with your time, effort, and energy. You have the power to decide where your focus and energy go. Choose carefully because it often means letting something else go.

In order to W.I.N., you need to focus on What’s Important Now.

We are all unique, with our own unique set of circumstances. But you are a product of your decisions, not your circumstances. When you base your decisions and set your priorities on the W. I. N., what’s important now, you are willing to let go of what doesn't support or move forward the goals and priorities that you need to W.I.N.

When you prioritize what’s important now, you set yourself up to win in every area of your life.
