Let’s Prioritize your wants and needs: Whenever you have ten items (or less) where you need to decide which one is most important to you, which one is next most important, etc. this prioritization grid should help immensely. Instead of trying to decide between ten items, you need only decide between two items at a time. The question is always: “If I could have “A” in my life or “B”, or “B” but not “A”, which one would I choose?”.
