How to Ruthlessly Prioritize

Marissa Mayer, former CEO of Google and now the CEO of Yahoo, is making headlines.  After giving birth in August, she spoke at Fortune Magazine’s “Most Powerful Women” dinner and shared the secret of her success: ruthless prioritization.

When it comes to her priorities, the 37-year-old CEO says, “For me, it’s God, family, and Yahoo, in that order.” Yahoo’s stock has gone up 18 percent since Mayer took the helm, so perhaps her advice is worth heeding.

But how does one ruthlessly prioritize?

    I love this! Marissa you get 2 thumbs up in my book! She is not only a CEO, but she said the number one important thing in her life is God! She is such a focused super woman! I believe that is how she is able to focus and get through the rest of her day! Marissa you are truly a blessed woman! God bless you for having the courage to say that God is important to you because without him, we can do nothing!
