That comes a long way down my list of priorities.


I read a sentence listed in the dictionary, and I have a question.
"That comes a long way down my list of priorities."
I am not sure what it means. Is it one of many priorities (is it considered an important task) or is it considered the least important task?
Can you clarify what the above sentence means?

    In this phrase "my list of priorities" is an imaginary list. But it is not a list of only "priority things" (high priority things). It is a list of every thing you should or could do. And the thing being discusssed is "a long way down" so it is "very low priority".
