No matter how important something seems to be, there is always something that gets in the way. I am constantly working on my books over the summer, but things do get in the way of that. All of the things I do on a daily basis which are important as well take up some time. The movie that I saw yesterday also took up some time. The new game app on my phone took up some time as well.
The priorities are important, but other things that we do are also important. What we do every day no longer becomes a priority; it simply becomes a motion. Then there are the distractions that seem to take a toll on the time.
If you have a priority, make sure you have nothing else to do. If you are able to devote an entire day to your priority without doing anything else, it will become a true priority, not just a title given to something that needs to be done eventually.
