Priorities: Not the easiest to keep in order

08 Jun

People are always talking about having priorities. One of the things we hear constantly throughout our lives is: 

Get your priorities straight.

We hear it growing up. We hear it as adults. We hear it while in relationships. How many actually listen though? Who takes the advice to heart?

There are quite a few people who need to learn this. It took me a little bit of time to follow this advice.

So what are the priorities of life? I think of it this way. Ask yourself what is most important in your life. Those things are your priority.

In my case, my priorities are as follows:

  • God (faith)
  • Family
  • Love
  • Me

The “me” category is vast. It covers things like a home, food, job, bills, etc. You get the point. Things like cable, games, video game consoles, etc., are considered luxuries. They aren’t priorities. They aren’t necessary for life. Things like having a home to live, food to eat and a job to pay for it all are.

People are part of our priorities. Looking out for those we love. Keeping our word is important and means a lot in this world. If you can’t keep your word, then why should anyone listen to you or trust you? That’s another topic for another day.

Back to priorities. Determine what those priorities are. Stick with them. Those are the most important things that are necessary for life. Sometimes it isn’t easy to keep these things in order.

There are so many other things that we want to do. Maybe go shopping or a vacation or a game. Unfortunately, we have to keep reminding ourselves what matters most.

<—-Remember this! It is relevant to every part of our lives from work to home life. Stop making excuses. You claim things are important. You claim things are a priority. Then find a way to take care of these things.

Sanity should also be a priority. Haha!
