The Impropriety of Priorities

Aside from the simple fact that establishing priorities is often an inscrutable process that even our most advanced computers can’t fathom, let alone humans, priorities – once established – can be time-sucking monsters. And what do I mean by time-sucking monsters? Well, that’s up to you, but here’s a quick crack at it.

Time-sucking monsters, an abbreviated list –

  • Exercise
  • Bills
  • Binge-watching Netflix
  • Job(s)
  • Kid(s)
  • Music
  • In-laws
  • New Year’s resolutions
  • Legend of Zelda
  • Coffee
  • Saving for retirement
  • Writing

Not all priorities are created equal, and not all time-sucking monsters are evil. But whether neutral good, chaotic neutral, or lawful evil, these time-sucking monsters exhibit a level of impropriety that is astounding. Priorities always seem to indecorously butt in and demand attention, and they often quarrel with each other too! At the worst times.

But hey, you can’t have your cake and eat it too. Priorities!
