By getting ourselves organized, sorting activities according to a set of priorities reflecting our most important objectives, we are lining up ourselves to face the day in a proactive manner.
Doing one thing to its conclusion before attempting another task is possibly out-of-date in the modern world of multitasking and perpetual motion. However, as we are talking about our life and not that of the so-called masses, we can still choose to do what works best for us.
Lining up the activities, getting ourselves in the best possible position to fulfil heartfelt goals and then implementing our strategy often requires the permission of nobody but ourselves. And if we wish to dilly-dally in the process, again it is a personal matter as long as we are not delaying others by doing so.
From a wider perspective, ‘lining up‘ could also be associated with the process of bringing together our resources for the sake of handling forthcoming projects. We may need to refer to past assignments to pull out proven best practices, or review details concerning what went right with previous jobs.
Lining up the relevant details in this fashion allows us to initiate new endeavours on a positive note rather than getting going on a ‘hit or miss’ footing.
