“Action expresses priorities.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
My husband, Jeff and I watched a Ted talk yesterday that I want to share. It was short, only 5 minutes, but it had a big impact on both of us, and evoked a wonderful conversation about our priorities.
We all get so caught up in the minutiae of our lives, we get busy and we often lose focus of our true priorities.
Reading Regrets of the Dying by Bronnie Ware, it was painfully obvious that what people regret on their deathbed is what they did not prioritize in their life:
1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
2. I wish I didn’t work so hard.
3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.
Please take time to listen to this short TED talk by Ric Elias, and think about what you are prioritizing.
Please let me know your thoughts on this TED Talk video, and any thoughts you have on your own priorities.
And as always thank you for taking the time to visit, I appreciate it.
