 A priority is something that you need to do more of, and you need to do sooner than later. According to Alfredo Pareto (Pareto Principle) -focusing attention on the top 20% of your priorities will get an 80% return on your effort. Your priority is your most important task and the top of mind that needs to be taken care of before any other activity.
