It’s a funny title, isn’t it? How to make your priority a priority. Unfortunately, many times our priority isn’t really a priority. You might say that something is your priority but don’t actually treat it that way. That’s why we need to learn to make our priority a priority.
I recently read The One Thing by Gary Keller. It’s an insightful book that can help you get the most out of your life. The message of the book is simple: you should focus on just one thing that gives you the most impact. Not a few things, but just one thing. So it goes further than the Pareto principle that says you should focus on a few important things. That’s why the book calls its principle extreme Pareto.
In investing, there is something called rebalancing your portfolio. A portfolio has different asset classes in it (such as stocks, bonds, and cash), and there is a particular allocation that best serves your financial goals. Over time, however, your portfolio might go out of balance. One asset class might outweigh the others because its price increases rapidly. The allocation will then deviate from its ideal.

Securing this consistency can deliver you everything you need in life and a little extra.
Note: This post is written by Remy Bernard Working from home, for some, can be a blessing and a curse. On one hand, you have a freedom that many cubicle dwellers dream of. No early morning commute to the office, no workplace drama (hopefully), and your schedule becomes much more flexible. When your office is your living room, oversleeping that extra 20 minutes because you had trouble falling asleep the night before becomes less of a problem. Even if you aren’t your own boss and are working for someone else remotely, logging your hours from the comfort of your bedroom or kitchen if you want to is a liberating experience.
