Deserves attention
You have a limited supply of attention to give and you can only really pay attention to one thing at a time. There will be a focus and everything else will be peripheral.

 You decide where to focus.

 You get to choose where you will spend your attention.

 Things that deserve my attention today:

 #1 - Being in an honest and transparent relationship with God and with the people in my life.

#2 - Making positive change in the world in those areas where I have influence. The second and third are of equal value so, they should be 3a and 3b.

#3- Paying attention to issues that involve correcting justice in PUBLIC policy, international diplomacy, matters of war and peace, issues of  oppression and other areas where my influence, vote, or comments may count.

#4- Encouraging, inspiring, motivating, and uplifting people.

#5 - Doing my work and minding my own business.

#6- #1976 - A variety of things because there will always be a variety and some things cannot be anticipated. 

And then, at the bottom of the list:

#1977 (if that high) - The personal scandals of high profile people (apparently somewhere between 1-4 on many peoples lists).

These are mine.

What are yours?

What if you paused for five minutes and wrote them down?

"Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people." - Eleanor Roosevelt
