We learned to count to 10 at a very young age.  But give someone a list of 10 things and ask them rank the 10 items in order of their importance, this becomes a much harder task.   Many people struggle with giving any one item the number 1 spot.  However, ranking the things you value will give you great insight into your true priorities. Some priorities will shift over time – due to changing circumstances and stages in our life.  It’s important to have great clarity of your priorities, at each stage in your life.  

Given these 12 items – Rank their priority in your life.

  • Career
  • Children
  • Education
  • Extended Family
  • Financial Security
  • Friends
  • Health
  • Immediate Family
  • Personal Time
  • Retirement
  • Safety/Security
  • Spouse/Partner

Your priorities will be called into action regularly, when new opportunities and challenges surface.  Clarity in your priorities will serve a vital role in you making the best decision for you, at any given time.
