"Greatness is great long before it is
We each must decide what stakes we want to play for in our life
. Just as a list helps us get more done when we have a lot to do
because it can reduce the time-wasting confusion and mistakes
about what to do, similarly, knowing what your priorities are
can help you make better decisions in hard times because you
can ask yourself, "What do my priorities tell me to do here?"
As you compare the different courses of action to your priorities
on questions you face, they will help make the decision for you.
When you know your priorities, most tough problems are readily
solved because the priorities themselves will tell you what to do.
That way you don't have to reinvent the wheel and build a wagon
every time you want to go somewhere.
You can't evaluate anything without a comparison. Thus ask yourself
when facing any tough choice or decision, "What are my priorities?"
and "Which course seems more likely to lead to my priorities?"
And from time to time ask, "Is this what I want for my life?"
