What order to take life? I like to think I them in the order above. I heard the comment from Susan Orman and thought about it when she said it and wondered how many people live life this way. What would you say or add into the factors?

I try to always put God first, then Family, friends, goals. My family is very important to me but without goals you have nothing to look foward to accomplishishing and providing your family with. If you have God in your life he can help you through the hard times and breeze through the easy, with love, faith,trust,passion and understanding all things are possible!!!

I guess I hadn't thought of putting God in the equation. I should have thought of that first. You are totally right. I wish I could go back and change it though. Hind sight is 20/20. Thank You.

Wow. This sure is a great topic! I once heard a story of a professor with a jar and stones of different sizes and a box of sand..heard that one? For those who might not have, he emptied the sand in the jar and asked his audience if it was full. They vehemntly said yes and he agreed, emptying it, he again filled it with the biggest rocks and asked his audience if it was full, they replied yes, then he shook the jar and the stones settled a bit and he was able to put in smaller stones, this time when he asked his question, the audience hesitated to agree, and sure enough with a little more settling, he was able to put in smaller stones and finally even some sand. The big stones represent the most important things we should do/ appreciate/ value in our lives, if we get those in first, there's always a chance for the smaller things to fit in, but if we fill our days and lives with the trivia (sand) it takes up all the space (and time) and thats all we can get in!
