Maxwell's daily dozen are as follows:
While John speaks to each priority individually, a few themes remain consistent throughout all of his advice. Namely:
For instance, in our relationships / friendships, it’s easy to spend the majority of our time with problem people. Instead, we ought to have a bias towards our best, most important, and most enjoyable relationships. “You should not spend time with everyone equally,” as Maxwell puts it on page 38. Or take work for example: nothing will frustrate more you in the workplace than doing a job you aren’t good at, with people you don’t like, to support a vision you don’t believe in! We can endure a setting like this for a time, but eventually, it will crush us.
As we seek to improve in every area of our lives, Maxwell’s encouragement is to avoid trying to grow our weaknesses, and instead, to intentionally focus on mastering the aspects of each priority that we excel in. While this seems like no-brainer advice, it’s seemingly much easier said than done. JumpStart Your Priorities exists for that purpose - to help us get over the hump and live our lives the way we actually want to.
