What should be the top priority in life? Everyone has one. A life goal. Something they desperately want to achieve. Something they would strive a lifetime to get to. Something they would probably even risk it all for.
According to the Guinness book of records, Mark Zuckerberg is the 15th youngest billionaire according to Forbes’ latest survey in 2022. Now his net worth is 67.3B. And his first invention was when he was still a student at Harvard.
Some people say he is a genius, some say he is crazy, but I will tell you what I think of this man; I think he is a lesson to all of us.
When I was in college, I had a few wealthy friends who were not like this. They didn’t spend money as if it were raining. They were very humble and had a purpose in everything they spent.
The point is, it doesn’t matter whether you are rich or not. What matters most is how you use your money, the things you buy, and, most importantly, how you use your time! Because I’m optimistic that we all have 24 hours in our day and no one can live more than 120 years on this planet.
That means our time on earth is precious and limited.

What Are Good Ways to Set Priorities in a Complex Life?
This is a question of what you want in life. Do you want to prioritise your career, hobbies, family and friends in life or money?
In a complex life, it is easy to get distracted by money and forget why you started working in the first place.
The good news is that everyone chooses what to prioritize, so you can choose the things that are important to you.
Don’t be a perfectionist. Perfectionism is the killer of progress. Perfectionists allow themselves to fall behind in their growing skills because they’re too busy being perfect.
Focusing on one or two priorities for a particular skill is generally good enough. This brings it down to a manageable level, rather than trying to juggle everything all the time.
This way, you have a chance to get good at what you’re focusing on without being so overwhelmed that you never complete anything.
Day-to-day priorities shouldn’t be too complex. The most important things should also be the easiest; if it’s hard, you’re probably doing something wrong. If it’s not easy, force yourself to do it until it becomes easy.
Take care of your physical health, eat, exercise and sleep well. If you go about your day feeling exhausted, overworked and unhealthy, you’ll have trouble making progress in anything you do.
Your body will end up fighting against you in ways that are entirely subliminal but also incredibly powerful; when your body isn’t healthy and rested, your brain doesn’t work as well as it could, and you’re likely to make more mistakes with less reading and less practice than if you had been taking care of yourself well.
What Are the Best Rules for Life?
Some of the best rules for life… and I’m not going to count on the fingers. You may know them, but I’ll keep my fingers if you don’t!
(1) Always have a plan. This rule is a bit tricky to explain as it’s such a broad topic, but let me give you an example: If you’re going to the beach, don’t go with a t-shirt and flip-flops. You have no idea what’s around the corner, so make sure you have your swimming trunks and beach shoes.
This rule applies everywhere. When you’re opening a new business or when you’re going to see your boss. Always be prepared; it keeps you away from stress and makes people trust you.
(2) Think positive. You will not be able to change the world if you think negatively. You need to find the light in every situation. The day will come when everything falls into place, and you’ll see that all your previous negative feelings are useless now.
