My point exactly. Maybe I expressed myself poorly.

These two do not always coincide, just as you say. And for that very reason if find it practical to regards them as two separate things. (In discussions they can get pretty tangled up sometimes.)
The things that are very important etc (high priority in the second sense) I want to always at least CONSIDER FIRST, before I perhaps choose to DO something different first that suits my present context or energy better. And that sounds exactly like what you describe, cwoodgold.
