We think about priorities as a todo list, something to be accountable for.
It’s quite common to say: My priority in life is to lose fat, to be fit, to learn swimming.
But then we do nothing.
Was it a priority? No.
Priorities are not what we think we should do, but what we actually do. Our facts and decisions define our priorities.
Yes, priorities can be defined well before their actions, but sometimes they don’t match. What we do is different than what we expected to be.
