What do you do when two priorities collide?  You are working towards a life where every day is rewarding, productive, and fun.  You are determined to create a life where your daily tasks line up to your monthly goals which line up with your overarching values.  You are creating your daily schedule with a purpose.

AND then BAM!  a conflict!

  • Maybe you are torn between your value of being a well respected business woman and your value of spending quality time with your family.

  • Maybe creating a morning routine consisting of self-care comes into conflict with supporting a friend at a morning event.[su_spacer size=”40″]
  • Maybe getting your business on strong financial footing (translation “working LOTS OF HOURS”) is in direct conflict with your value of LIVING your life instead of watching it pass you by.

My client (and my personal sales coach) Hugh Liddle explained his version of how to balance conflicting priorities.   Here’s a peak into his mind as he made the decision.  I’ve summarized a bit – so please take a moment to read THE Sales Wizard’s complete thoughts on creating a schedule that works for you.





  1. No matter how carefully we plan, there will always be some conflicts that arise in the process of planning our businesses and our lives, in the balance between work time and personal time.[su_spacer size=”40″]
  2. There may be a way to compromise.[su_spacer size=”40″]
  3. When there’s a conflict between two major values I have to make a decision about which course will serve me and my loved ones best at this time in my life.[su_spacer size=”40″]
  4. Nothing is ever set in concrete.  I have the freedom to change my mind and my plan if it serves me well to do so.

Conflicting tasks are a fact of life.

How you choose to approach this conflict is what’s important.

You can throw your hands up in the air, exclaim “every time I try to schedule my priorities this happens!“, or your can take a step back, examine your options, and make a decision based on the facts available.

It’s a choice.

Your turn!  I’m curious how do you decide between two priorities?
