It is quite difficult to answer when we are asked what the difference between priority and importance is. Both seem like the same, isn’t it? But in actual they differentiate a lot. Everybody does have something important in their life but that doesn’t mean that important thing has to be your priority. We also have some priorities in our life and priorities in our life are important.
Let’s clear your doubt out with an example: we have a lot to do every day but there are few things to get done within a fixed time. Such as in your office or colleges even at home, and because that needs to done on time. You work first on that because that work is your priority and you know it needs to be done on or before time. But we can’t ignore the rest of the work they are important as well so we keep on doing them as well.
