plural noun: priorities
a thing that is regarded as more important than another."housework didn't figure high on her list of priorities"
These little things called priorities are hard to understand. Sure, we know what they are. By definition, it seems so easy to comprehend. But that doesn't tell you how to manage it in real time. Our parents told us all about having them, and also about cleaning our rooms, and not procrastinating. But now that I am an adult, my mindframe is "do I have something to wear to work tomorrow, or do I have to do laundry". It isn't always pretty, but it is definitely true. Are you with me?
The hard part to me about understanding priorities, is trying to balance them. How do you decide what things stay and what things can wait in our already too short of a day?
I want to write more, journal more, make more, and just sit and have a morning coffee. But do those things matter when you have laundry, a husband to feed (who am I kidding, I don't cook), dogs to love on, work and an ongoing list of spring cleaning you don't want to do?
I guess my point, which leads to a question is how is everyone else doing it out there? Are you making lists? Do you have a secret weapon to managing time? How do you prioritize your life into need to do and have to do? Any suggestions?
