We live in a world today where everyone and everything is vying for our attention. People are constantly asking for your help, for your effort, for your advice, for anything. Things need you to maintain them, to buy them, to use them. Time is our most precious commodity and we are constantly exchanging our time for things of importance to us.
Some people have a priority for work.
Some people have a priority for travel.
Some people have a priority for family.
Some people have a priority for friends.
Some people have a priority for their hobby.
Some people have a priority for money.
Some people have a priority for fun.
All kinds of people have all kinds of priorities. It wouldn’t be right of me to tell you what your priorities should be. Then I would simply be one more person vying for your attention.
What I am telling you to do is to take the time to sit down and write out your priorities. You have them in your mind and your heart, but writing them down will help you to stand more firmly in your true priorities. Knowing your priorities will help you to be clear about what you want in life, and how to spend your precious time. It is a commodity not to be wasted.
Our acts make or mar us,–we are the children of our own deeds. –VICTOR HUGO.
