Setting up priorities.

We all do mistakes. Sometimes we start reading a book or watch television, while we should have been writing the book we always wanted to write. Or we paint our nails when we should wash dishes. Those are small things of course, but just an example of badly set priorities.

I used to do that all the time. I was playing games most of my free time, then suddenly I had to learn fifty pages for some exam and had to stay up late at night to try to learn everything (and get at least satisfying grade). I had so much free time in comparison to nowadays running around and trying to fix things that I feel like I wasted so much time in those days. Sometimes I think that if I, instead of 5 hours of computer games, picked up a book in English or went to the gym, my life would be so much better. I would be either healthier, wiser or at least wouldn’t have worsened vision (I don’t know if it applies to me, but usually computers make your vision worse). It all depends on the one’s choice.


Every day is a new choice. It’s like each day is 24 choices you make every hour. For example of course, because obviously, you could be sitting at monotonous work for 8 hours whereas your choice can only be what to eat for lunch and if coffee with sugar or black one. Those insignificant choices aren’t important enough.

I speak about those choices, where you have important things to fix, like a doctor, or study to an exam and you choose not to do that immediately in order to have fun for example. Your priorities say a lot about you. If you do your work first and then party, it means your life is well organized. If you choose to party, enjoy yourself all the time you are either lazy, procrastinating or you don’t know what to do with your life. If you want to succeed, you need your time to be well organized.


In my case, my studying is the first priority. Then is writing bachelor, then part-time job and after that blog, gym and all those small, insignificant things. Of course, above all those things my relationship is the most important thing, but it’s not something I need to put in the calendar, so it’s not on the list.

Everyone’s life is different, everyone has different things to fix, but we all have to know what’s more important at the moment, during the day, week in the life. No one wants to go backward in life, but if you’re lazy, you don’t move ahead. Because life is like a river, and when one’s not moving, it takes you wherever; you could drown or end up somewhere you never wished to be. It’s all up to you.


Sorry for so much rambling, but I got a little bit too into the subject. I hope it was at least eye-opening if not that enjoyable to read. Have a nice week everyone and see you on Saturday! Something Christmas-themed is coming.
