Priorities - Deepstash

Priorities

  • Think of your priorities in terms of concentric circles, like an archery target. In the center is your highest priority: you. 
  • The next ring—and your second-biggest priority—is economics. That includes your job, your investments, and even your house. If you don’t get your personal financial engine working right, you place a burden on everyone from your family to the country. 
  • Once you are both healthy and financially sound, it’s time for the third ring: family, friends, and lovers. Good health and sufficient money are necessary for a base level of happiness, but you need to be right with your family, friends, and romantic partners to truly enjoy life. 
  • The next rings are your local community, your country, and the world, in that order. Don’t bother trying to fix the world until you get the inner circles of your priorities under control.

Keep Your Priorities In Sight

Focus on a single "priority," not on multiple "priorities." The key to living an essential life is understanding what your priority is. Is it your family? Your career? Your hobby?

You will know your real priority once you know what you want out of life.
