How Are Your Priorities?

Do you feel you do a good job of prioritizing your day, week, month, year, decade and life?

We need a different set of priorities for various time frames, places and people, don’t we? What is important to do at home may not be that crucial at work, and vice versa. What is important with your boss is probably not the same as with your children or spouse.

Each day, often each minute or hour, we are constantly prioritizing. What are we going to do with the next minute, next hour, next afternoon?"Priorities" Road Sign with dramatic clouds and sky.

How do we prioritize? Some of this has to do with time management, but it is also a philosophical question. How do you put a value on each task, feeling and thought?

When placed in proper context, some priorities that at first seemed vital may actually pale in comparison with other priorities.

As a practical matter, if you find yourself falling behind with your important tasks each day, it might be time to more closely examine your priorities and how you choose to spend your days.

In the big picture, though, setting priorities should be pretty straightforward…just listen to John Butler’s song Losing You, and I think you’ll see what I mean.
