Replying to LO18712 --

Dear Rol,

>Winfried focuses on my rather glib statement about the importance of
>"being clear about priorities."

I am sorry, I should not have linked my questions with your statement,
although it was your statement, that triggered my questions.

>When you ask, "Isn't it part of "caring" to acknowledge that people are
>usually all but clear about their priorities?" I don't understand what
>you mean.

Children need special care when they are confused. You answer in an
agreeing manner to my question, when you write:

>So, to answer Winfried, by
>"being clear about priorities" I mean communicating what I have already
>determined, not actually determining the priorities.

This "communicte what you have already determined" is a kind of giving
orientation. People who have difficulties in determining their priorities
need such orientation. But this must happen in a caring, not manipulating
manner. Your contributions on the "ranking"-topic showed me, that you are
both: caring and clear. I like this very much.

Liebe Gruesse,
Winfried Dressler
