How to Prioritize Your To-Do List the Right Way

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support. See the full disclosure.

How many items do you put on your to-do list everyday? If yours is like mine, once I start writing, it's pretty hard to stop. There are a million things we can choose to do with each day. How do you prioritize appropriately? Some things are time sensitive, others are no brainers because we all have to eat eventually. But how do you know which items to let go? Which items come first? And are you forgetting to write some things down? 


If you are new, every Wednesday, different LDS bloggers share their favorite scripture and why via Facebook. In each Faceboook Live video, they will also tell you about the new free printable to go along with their scripture. Be sure to like our Facebook Page so you can find out each week. Sometimes it's a poster to hang in your home, sometimes a coloring page, or even a mini booklet. Be sure to check out some of the other scripture freebies you can use after you grab this one. 


Krisite from Our Kerrazy Adventure chose a scripture in Acts this week. In Acts 9 Jesus appears to Saul. Verse 6 says, 

And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. 

"Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?" It's a simple question we should all be asking. My to-do list may have 100 things on it but none of them are as important as the things the Lord wants me to really do.

Before you make your next to-do list, take a minute to pray to your Heavenly Father. Ask Him what He needs you to do today. Ask Him to help you make first things first. Then listen and start writing. Those are the things that should be your top priorities. Do those things first and you'll have time for everything else that really matters.

Kristie wrote about one of the most important things that matter- daily family scripture study. If this is something you struggle with or want to continue to improve, read her post, 6 Ways to Improve Family Scripture Study. 

Your Turn- What's on your to-do list this week? How will it change as you go back to ponder this scripture?
