The refrain "If you don't know where you're going, any road'll take you there" was ... and the Cheshire Cat in Chapter 6 of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland

Divine, Define, filter and refine

Priorities

It was derived from several sources both divine and inspirational. First the inspirational:

These are the two man books I derived my organization skills from:

http://www.amazon.com/The-Habits-Highly-Effective-People/dp/0743269519/ref=sr_1_sc_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1362069159

The values part of it comes from many sources but what got me thinking about it originally is coming through the Franklin-Covey time management course I took back in 1997. Covey has this concept of a mission statement and values. I don’t dropped the mission statement is being too simplistic in today's complicated and plural society. But I did like his idea of values. Even though it’s tired and worn out phrase it’s still cultural and true today. I just personalize it more.

Ok so you have seen the standard priorities chart, urgent, non-urgent, etc…

I just took that to a different level with the main assumption that there is no humanly way I can accomplish all that I would like to do in this moment or in this lifetime. So that end I now place all perceived tasks or objectives in the following quadrants:

I still apply the classic priority chart from Cover above but only after first running it through the quadrant filter above.

Lastly I set dates to (hard and when I would like to accomplish based on resources, availability and time constraints).
