Say life is made up of choices, between good (right) and bad (wrong), or bad (forced) and worse (even less good), or good and better, and sometimes between good and best/perfect/our dream-plans.
Jesus set in our Scriptures, which we use to guide our lives, the definition for what is the steps toward eternal perfect life and how to live, in Matthew 19:21, which you should now look up in your moment of study.
To focus on the perfect life, and to trade everything we have invested in, in worldly dreams and plans, in our possessions, in our opinions independently set, in our relations with people's ideals, in our worlds of fiction and politics and gossip and judgements, to trade all of that fully over to Christ is the most free feeling we can ever have, on Earth as it is in heaven.
We need a constant reminder to bring us back to that state of mind in our worldly environments, and that is by Primary (task chosen to be for the best), Backup (task to manage anything else in our environments to center that environment on that primary task) and Justification (the making sure of our choices we make to be toward that perfect life of what Jesus would want us to do, that is, to serve God with complete confidence in God's goodness, not putting trust in worldly ways above him no matter what habits and little excuses and so-called environmental obligations seem to ask for our attention.
Primary, Backup, and Justification (Jesusification). That is the trust, the gratitude toward God and honoring Him with the praise of serving Him with our lives which were given us as a gift of stewardship, a limited but immeasurably precious gift of time to spend on Him.
