He who pursues righteousness and loyalty Finds life, righteousness and honor.

(Proverbs 21:21 NASB)

Priorities, Quotations, Goals and Such

The key is not to prioritize what's on your schedule,

but to schedule your priorities. ~ Stephen Covey


Schedules and Planning. Organizing and Prioritizing.

At times it can all seem so, so, spell bounding. What in life is truly important? Is it different for each individual? Do we all really have the same set of priorities and just order them differently? Have you ever wondered about the person walking on the other side of the sialealk?

Are hopes and dreams priorities? Think about it, if my hope and dream is to be a successful "anything" do I have the same priorities as others wanting the same thing? Ooh, what was that word? "wanting". Hmm, I thought "needs" were priorities.

If you want something but need something else and all you do is set your direction on wants then you really aren't fulfilling priorities, are you? If you forget about what is truly important your priorities are lost.

So, how do you schedule priorities?

  • Food & Drink
  • Shelter
  • Clothing
  • Health Related
  • Family

Prioritizing Your Schedule might look like:

  • Fortune/Money
  • Success
  • Friends

Do You See the difference?

Over the next few weeks and months I will be looking at these things. Organizing, Prioritizing, Schedules, Goals and Planning.

I hope you will join me, as a go through this process of finding more direction in my life.

What about you? Do you have any tips or struggles?

    Sched­ul­ing my pri­or­i­ties has been dif­fi­cult lately. I want to be home with my kids, but I need to work. With­out me going to get a job we have been strug­gling finan­cially. It’s a tough thing to fig­ure out!

  2. Sadie says:

    I make fam­ily time a top pri­or­ity, but after that it’s all kind of random.

  3. Angela says:

    I am really strug­gling with sched­ul­ing and pri­or­i­tiz­ing the needs of my blog right now. I’m kinda fly­ing by the seat of my pants at the moment! :)

  4. Chelsea @ Someday I'll Learn says:

    Lol, I mis­read it and thought the quote at top was from Stephen COLBERT at first. I was like, “Why the heck are you tak­ing advice from Stephen Colbert??”

    Good for you for work­ing on your priorities!

  5. Anne says:

    This is so true! In fact I was just try­ing to explain this to my 18 year old last night, but I don’t think it sunk in. Maybe you need to learn it from experience.

  6. Angela - About A Mom says:

    I am look­ing for­ward to the rest of this series!

  7. Ashley says:

    Great points! Our pri­or­i­ties are so screwed up some­times. Quite often I stop to reeval­u­ate my needs com­pared to my wants. The impor­tant things often get swept to the side! Great post!
