Day 2045: Priorities

It’s been over five years since I’ve written a post about priorities,  and writing another one is my priority today.

With the overwhelming amount of information and responsibilities that many of us have, setting priorities can be difficult.

For example, what are the priorities among all the headlines in my Google news feed? Let’s see.

I assume that, depending upon your priorities, your Google news feed might be prioritized differently.

My priorities, here and now, include letting you know that

  1. The news item of the highest priority for me appears eighth from the bottom of that list and
  2. Another personal top-priority news item (today’s special election in Ohio) doesn’t even show up in my Google news feed.

One of my priorities in this blog is including a YouTube video that connects to the post title:

 

Another one of my priorities for these daily blog posts is sharing my photos from the day before:

IMG_1970

IMG_1974

IMG_1975

IMG_1976

IMG_1977

IMG_1978

IMG_1979

IMG_1980

Obviously, my priorities today didn’t include repositioning any of those photos. However, my priorities always include thanking all who help me create these posts and — of course! — YOU!

  1. food for thought

  2. Always make it a priority to see your blog

  3. I try to get to as much as possible, Ann.

  4. Perhaps I shouldn’t think too much about what it says about my priorities that I think Steve McQueen couldn’t possibly have made a 2019 car famous. I’m reminded, though, that as a film star McQueen quietly did charitable work for the Boys Republic reformatory school where he spent time as a teenager. He never publicized what he did, and I believe the extent of his charity only came out after his death.
    Also the August 1, 2018 issue of The New York Times magazine is devoted entirely to the article “Losing Earth: The Decade We Almost Stopped Climate Change”, about how scientist first really tried to warn the world about climate change in 1979, but were ignored because politicians had other priorities.

  5. The more I think of my priorities … the more I realize I am out of synch with most people. Thankful to be in synch with you Ann 💛

  6. I know some people who need to get their priorities right but that is just my thought

  7. So many priorities….

  8. Today for me was more about pie-orities. The one I made was peach!

  9. Finding Harley is a priority

  10. My priority would be the weekend shooting score – but who cares?
