Thoughts about priorities
“Our life is the sum total of all the decisions we make every day, and those decisions are determined by our priorities.” Myles Munroe
“Priorities are the things that give life meaning and a purpose. Because these goals are so important, you’re willing to put in the extra effort and time into them. … You begin to focus on the preferences and stop wasting time on areas that don’t matter. Priorities also keep you motivated to progress towards your goals.”
The course of life does not follow an easy path. Hurdles come one after another. We have to attend to several tasks in a single day throughout our whole life. And since we become hell-bent on performing all of those tasks in such a short period, we get lost.
And these final thoughts on the subject…
What, exactly, are your priorities for this day, this year, this experience of life? What is of importance to you, and in what order?
Want to give yourself a massive advantage in all you do? Be clear, specific, and honest with yourself about your priorities.
A well-developed sense of your priorities will foster confidence, enthusiasm, and discipline. When you’re clear about your priorities, you’re able to make optimum use of your time, energy, and resources.
Priorities inform you without restricting you. They give valuable perspective to every choice you make.
Even when you have strong, clearly defined priorities, you’re not always forced to follow them. You are, however, always able to give your consideration to them.
Know your priorities, and you can make decisions more quickly, with better quality. Know and pay attention to your priorities, and you’ll have an essential structure to live a life of great fulfillment.
