The priority circle is a theory about life by Sahil Gupta, which has it’s applications in agenda setting and decision making.

The priority circle is an imaginary circle containing various points that signifies levels of priority for the point in the life of whose circle is drawn. These are the various rules of the circle:

  1. Each point denotes a person, an object or an activity.
  2. Every person has a priority circle, knowingly or unknowingly.
  3. The level of priority is inversely proportional to the distance from the centre i.e. closer points to centre have more priority and vice versa.
  4. The point at centre is usually the person whose priority circle is being talked about. Thus, giving themselves an infinite priority.
  5. While deciding the position of the person in the circle, one must give higher priority to the points who in turn have them in higher priority in their priority circle.
  6. The Circle has a finite radius but an infinite scope of expansion.
  7. The points outside of circle are have no level of priority or zero priority as their distance is considered infinite from the centre.
  8. No two points are equidistant in a stable system.
