Chapter 6. Goals and priorities > Characteristics of priorities

Characteristics of priorities

Explanation

Priorities are your objectives ranked in order of importance. Priorities can either have the characteristic of having long-range importance or short-range urgency. Priorities of long-range importance are priorities that will have an important effect once they are accomplished. For example, your priority might be to go back to school to fulfill the educational requirements to accomplish the goal of getting a promotion. This priority is of long-range importance. A priority of short-range urgency is something that, no matter how important it is, must be done immediately. For example, today is the last day for you to make a reservation to attend the company picnic. This priority must be given special attention today, but is not of great importance long-term.
