If his health fails, his family could fall apart. Then, even Spyderco could collapse. Things like this are not unheard of in life.
For myself, I put my business at the top. If that fails, my entire family could suffer. Work needs to be first or no family eats, or has a home. If you are not the main source of income, then you could place things in a different order.
Then, I would say health as that can cause problems with your job, then family and friends mixed together, as all my friends are my family, too. I do have a wonderful set of friends, all of them I have known for well over 30 years. My work income will take care of my house and whatever hobbies.
It all comes full circle when I roll out one of my sport bikes, and run it up to 149 MPH on my special CHP free test run road, and 15 minutes later, I put it away, and go back to my desk. Head cleared! I am working on 200, but that will have to be on a track. (Everyone should go 100 MPH on a motorcycle at least once.)
This is too much philosophy for one day.
This is just me, I never bothered to buy the text books for my liberal arts classes in college, so what do I know?
As a sidebar to all of this...living up to the promises you make is very important, when people fail in this area, things will never be right. I would just add this in with your job and doing it well, and to the best of your abilities.
Everyone will have a different outlook. There is no one way to put things in order across the board.
Very fun thread.
