Prioritization hack: Replace “Couldn’t” with “Chose not to”!

The next time you want to say “I couldn’t…”, just replace it with “I chose not to…”.

And you’ll realize how you are prioritizing things on your plate.

Here are some examples…

“I couldn’t work on…” → “I chose not to work on…”
“I couldn’t get back to you…” → “I chose not to get back to you…”
“I couldn’t reach on time…” → “I chose not to reach on time…”
“I couldn’t wake up…” → “I chose not to wake up…”
“I couldn’t exercise…” → “I chose not to exercise…”

You get the idea.

The more you say “I chose not to…”, you’ll realize it’s you, who are responsible for not doing the things that you had promised to do.

Eventually, you’ll start prioritizing the things that matter to you.

Hope this helps!
