Much in life is prioritizing, whether it's choosing to concentrate on business or pleasure, saving up for the future or spending for the now.

For me, I run more than 20 miles per week just so I can eat Whataburger without getting fat.

Leicester City has its own priorities when it comes to competing on two fronts this season.

After the Foxes' shock run to the English Premier League crown, the small club qualified for the Champions League for the first time.

Without the resources of a typical Champions League club from one of the top four leagues in Europe, Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri and the club have opted to prioritize the Champions League.

The choice has paid off brilliantly, like ordering a honey butter cheddar biscuit in the morning or a patty melt in the evening.

Through three games the Foxes are unbeaten in the group stage, leading Group G with nine points, five ahead of Copenhagen and Porto.

To be fair, Leicester City probably couldn't have imagined an easier group to be drawn into, one that also includes Club Brugge. Perhaps only Group B is anywhere close to the dearth in quality in one group.

Meanwhile there's the group of death with Barcelona, Manchester City, Borussia Monchengladbach and Celtic and a number of groups with powerful 1-2 combos like Arsenal-PSG, Atletico-Bayern Munich and Real Madrid-Dortmund.

But the Foxes have played well with the hand they were dealt - at least in Europe.

Back home in England, Leicester sits in 13th with eight points through eight matches.

The Foxes have already lost more games (four) this season than they did all of last season (three).

Clearly the priority is to do as well as possible in the Champions League, because you never know when Leicester will return to the world's top club competition.

It's a bold strategy, but so is switching to a Whataburger taquito for breakfast or a jalapeno cheeseburger for dinner. And that always pays off pretty well for me.
