“A simple life is not seeing how little we can get by with—that’s poverty—but how efficiently we can put first things first. . . . When you’re clear about your purpose and your priorities, you can painlessly discard whatever does not support these, whether it’s clutter in your cabinets or commitments on your calendar.”
Good priorities are a powerful thing. Priorities have the power to shape our whole life, and good priorities will shape our days and weeks and years into the kind of life we truly want. Even if we don’t think that we have priorities, we do, so ensure they are good ones.
Good priorities, priorities that are really right for us change the way we approach every aspect of our life
Those who have their priorities in the right order are hard workers, but their jobs do not rule their lives and neither does their quest for money. They know that money doesn’t make people happy and they strive to cultivate rich, nurturing and loyal relationships, which are more important to them than bank accounts. Whether they are wealthy or have limited financial resources, they cherish and appreciate the real assets of their lives — blessings that no amount of money can buy.
“Most of us spend too much time on what is urgent and not enough time on what is important.”
Stephen R. Covey
