After teaching my 10-year-old student the meaning of the word priority, I asked him, "So, what are your top five priorities?


Little Boy:   Soccer, baseball, food, computer games, cellphone games...

Me:             How about your homework??!!


Little Boy:  That's Number 2, 421...



Me:              How was your soccer match?

Little Boy:    We lost...

Me:               Why? What went wrong?

Little Boy:     I was the goalkeeper.



Me:                 In life, balance is very important.

Little Boy:      Yes. I hope our school will have balance someday.

Me:                 Balance in what?

Little Boy:      Like... one hour class, one hour break time.
