WHY PUT FIRST THINGS FIRST?

First things first? Then that must be me. I am first and should be before anyone else right? Isn’t that the way it goes in this day and age? We consider ourselves as number one, we look out for number one and each man for himself?

I am not sure that which follows from the first question above really addresses the title of this entry. For me, to put first things first seems to imply going pass a me oriented frame of reference.

Is there something mutually intrinsic to all of us that requires an answer to such a question or are we all separate individualistic bubbles floating around a cosmos with no end in sight? Do we begin with the end in mind or do we do whatever we feel like?
