Each new day represents a new opportunity for inner growth, an opportunity to learn and to feel better about yourself. Prioritizing helps you understand what really matters in your life.
The truth is that not all days are the same. There will probably be days that are more productive than others, when you feel better, more active and energetic, but there will also come times that, once night falls, they will bring with them a sense of frustration for not being able to do everything that was planned, because something has blocked us and did not allow us to advance.
'Too many times the urgent leaves no time for the important.'

This happens when you are not able to establish a clear order of importance of the things to do. By putting the things that lead to real growth first, the feeling of being on the right path comes by itself. To know what are the things to prioritize, it is necessary to look within oneself and identify what really matters to one's person.
Even if you haven't set a specific goal yet, it is clear that each of us, to move forward, must be able to order the components of his life according to their importance, so as to be productive in work and personal life, and to be fully himself.
Focus on the things you love to do
Always put the first work or another aspect of life that doesn't really satisfy you is not a good idea. Physical and emotional health, in fact, could be seriously damaged in the long run. Always try to carve out a moment for yourself and for the activities you love to do, even if it is trivial things like reading on your favorite chair or doing ten minutes a day of meditation ... the important thing is to find time for yourself.
“Life is neither technology nor science. Life is an art; you have to feel it: it's like keeping your balance on the rope '
There are people who are so busy with their work that they can't get away from it even at the end of the day, forgetting about themselves. Even if you enjoy your job, it is important to find activities outside of it that give you joy, and that you can sometimes put in front of the work itself.
Think about what's really important to you
Spending your life completely absorbed in activities that in themselves have no value and that follow one after the other, could lead you to forget what really matters. Slowly an imbalance will be generated in you which will be difficult to remedy later on.
Helping others usually makes us feel better, but let's not forget that we too need a good dose of attention . A need that, even if at first it could go unnoticed due to too much stress, will eventually make us explode if it remains unsatisfied.
Make a list of the things you enjoy doing
Usually, when we make a list to establish our priorities, we tend to write in the first place the word 'work' or another activity that we know we have to do even if we don't like it. This is a serious mistake: when making a list of priorities, it is first of all essential to think about what makes us feel really good.
'What is life? A frenzy; what is life? An illusion, a shadow, a fiction, and the greatest good is small; so all life is a dream, and dreams are the works of man. '
-Pedro Calderón de la Barca-
Try to write a list with the activities you have not yet tried, with the places you would like to visit, write down the ways in which you would really like to spend yours time . There is no doubt that we all have to work to be able to survive in this society, but for it to become a priority, the work will have to really thrill you.
Put yourself first on the priority list
We are lucky enough to be able to choose and our life can be as we want it. It is up to us to choose happiness, but to find it we will have to become one with our reality. It is very easy, just think of how quickly time passes when you do something for pleasure, when you feel so good that you emotionally join an activity.
The key aspect to give order to your life is to place yourself in the first place, and then think very carefully about what really matters to yourself. Do you live in harmony with your values and goals from the time you wake up in the morning to when you go to bed at night?
'It is not the years of your life that count, but the life in your years'
Do not make the mistake of prioritizing past problems or people who irritate you, instead focus on the life you would like and dedicate yourself to it . If you don't have a clear idea of what to do with your life, you will come back every night frustrated after work, distracted by what others are doing, even complaining about not having set your priorities in time.
