Motivational Quote - Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of those that matter the least.

SparkPeople's Comments

Do you know what your priorities are? Maybe you say that your family and your health are the most important, but do you reflect this in your daily functioning? Sometimes, work and other things can take too large of a role in people’s lives. They get too caught up in what is going on around them and forget to focus on what is important to them. Sit down and decide what values and beliefs you hold and stick to them. Figure out what is most important in your own life and put this first. Everything else will fall into place around it.

This could apply to volunteer projects that can take too much away from family time.
Don't short-change your loved ones------- Keep the priorities in order!

This quote is possibly attributable to the late Steven R. Covey, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.

Thank you for reminding us of the importance of this. My youngest son always says "It'll be "aight" tomorrow.

I wish I could ingrain this saying and never forget it! I tend to go with the moment and what I want right then and disregard previous plans or goals I may have made for myself.
