What I deem important and what you deem important are two very different things.

We can be on the same project, in the same sprint, working the same problem but have very different ideas of what is important, what is not and what should be done next.

There are diatribes written about how you should configure importance, severity, value, etc, etc that go at length to define it, to get us all thinking the same way to solve the problem and prioritize it.

But in the end, it’s that we all have our own Internal variables, background, and worldview that define importance that makes for the most interesting discussions and product decisions.

We don’t need to do it all the same way, what we need to do is respect all the ways and come together in our decision.
