I learned that we can do anything, but we can’t do everything… at least not at the same time. – Dan Milman
Often in life we are faced with choices. Barring a few learned ones, almost all of us had experienced dilemma over our decisions. Time is not everlasting and hence precious. If we are to make optimum use of whatever time we have got left in our life we should inevitably prioritize our tasks and decisions. Certain things will therefore, have to take precedence over others which are relatively less important.
Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least – Johann Wolfgang Goethe
However, it is commonly observed that our priorities change with time. What we perceive today to be important may not seem so some years later. Our lives are constantly changing and due to our environment or our own realization we tend to prioritize different things at different times.
Priorities should not be limited to decisions about things, we should also prioritize the people we want to keep company with. Its no use being with someone who cannot help in our betterment. A man is known by the conpany he keeps, or so it is said. Although not entirely true but this saying has got some weight. It is better to be alone than in bad company.
Actions expresses priorities- Mahatma Gandhi
Nothing expresses our priorities more than our actions. What we do is a reflection of what we deem important in life.
