For me there are two most important things: health and family.

My health Aug 7, 2011

Obviously, my health would be most important. Then comes family and then comes everything else.

Work/career Aug 7, 2011

I opted, reluctantly, for work/career, but, honestly, without my work, I wouldn’t be able to raise my family (I’m a single mother of three, they're all adults now and out of the nest...), entertain my friends, feed my pets and enjoy my hobbies...

As it is, of course, a combination of the above.

Happiness and thus (self-)accomplishment in whatever field(s) you deem important. They may be on equal level: can you be happy if you are successful in your career but a total failure family-wise? Can you be happy when you are permanently frustrated with your professional or your private life, etc.?

Food Aug 7, 2011

Glorious food. Eaten among family and friends after a good day's translating.

Money Aug 7, 2011

Money never sleeps.
The amount of money you have determines how you live.
If you have a certain amount, you don't have to work for money anymore, money works for you and allows you to live a normal life. No jet-set life, but have a normal house without having to worry about a mortgage, have a German quality car, travel, learn other languages (intensive language course are costly) and do whatever you want.

My thoughts exactly. Good health is also an important factor.
Having to choose only one, is like having to choose between which one of your eyes is more important.

In an ideal world there would be a well balanced combination.

1 MUNDO Aug 7, 2011

"One world" is what my license plate says, and what's most important to me is to play my infinitesimal and flawed part in inching the planet and all inabiting it toward health and peace. All the other items on the list are important to me as a means toward making some small but helpful difference.
