My question for you, dear friends and readers:

This word is not too difficult, its meaning is clear. Then why do so many adults have difficulties prioritising their tasks?

The first answer I came up with:  They all have a very different take on what is important and – what is not.  😦

    • Sure thing, Marian. The main issue is that everyone in the team has a different take on priorities; the team is not acting as one. 😦
