So, here is some mindless ramble. There really isn’t enough hours in a day to do all that I would like to do. Or is it that I need to do? Or have to do? I guess that boils down to the question of priority doesn’t it? It’s just that my mind is playing tricks on me – You have to do this and that and that and this and on and on and on it goes.
What is my priority? Priority? Priority? Whatever does that word mean? Priority to me or to another? If I was at work then priority leans in the direction of my boss, doesn’t it? At church would be the pastor or whichever ministry I would be involved in, at home my spouse or kids (if you have any). Priority usually signifies that there is something that must be done, something that out ranks another, whether it is important or not or urgent or not. It’s just a matter of fact. But who decides on what is priority and when is it okay to choose the one over the other?
Definition of priority could be summarised as:
- A thing that is regarded as more important than another
- The fact or condition of being regarded or treated as more important
- The right to take precedence or to proceed before others
- (of a state or situation) Requiring immediate action or attention
- (of action or an event) Done or arranged in response to such a situation
- (of a person or their manner) Earnest and persistent in response to such a situation
- Of great significance or value; likely to have a profound effect on success, survival, or well-being
- (of a person) Having high rank or status
- (of an artist or artistic work) Significantly original and influential
