Plural Priorities

In the book, The One Thing, Gary Keller made a point that was worth the entire book to me. He mentioned that the word priority didn’t become pluralized until the last century. My guess is because we wanted to lie to ourselves that we could focus on more than one thing. That’s the opposite of focus.

Priority by definition can only be one thing.

So, the next time you list your top 3 priorities, just stop, and choose one. That’s your priority.
