“Would you please tell me which way I ought to go from here?”
“that depends a good deal on where you want to get to.” Said the Cat.
“I don’t much care where – “ said Alice
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go” said the Cat
This revealing conversation took place between the Cheshire Cat and Alice in Lewis Carrol’s enduring tale. To me this is a wonderful example of how purpose and priority intersect in life and both are tremendously important! We cannot do without each of them working in harmony!
Purpose will always provide you with the knowledge of where you want to go and why.
Priority will help you determine what you want to do when you get there.
At the start of each day we have a choice to ask ourselves ‘what shall I do’ or ‘what should I do’? A life without direction and purpose will always get you somewhere however a life lived on purpose will always bring you something you ‘should do’ and a place that you ‘must go’ to. I know for me I want to live and travel in a life that knows what it should do and why….
When your life is on purpose, living by priority takes precedence
