Time flies! We are already halfway through the first month of 2022. A new year brings with it the promise of new beginnings and a ‘re-gearing’ of what matters most to us.  

In this month’s Quick Polls, let’s find out how people feel about priorities in life!

Unsurprisingly, 8 out of 10 people (84%) we polled felt that life is short. As the saying goes, “Time is long, but life is short”, hence it is important for us to make the most of our life and live it to the fullest. You only live once!

What do you prioritise in life?


Based on 189 people polled as of 31 December 2021

Priorities give life meaning and purpose.

4 out of 10 people we polled (43%) felt that health was the most important and roughly 3 out of 10 people (29%) felt that relationships were most important. This could also be due to the Covid-19 pandemic causing people to be more health conscious and to cherish their relationships.

2021 may have been a difficult year for all of us, but with every new year comes a clean slate so let us move ahead and focus on what’s most important in life. Cheers to a better year ahead! 😊
