meanwhile I asked my Chinese teacher. She translated “first things first” with 首先 shou3xian1。

Hey Wande!

I would agree with your teacher with 首先. “首先,我們現來看。。。”. I’ll have a think and see if anything else comes to find.

Hi Fi, 感谢你。很喜欢你的“我们先来看”。

I think “first things first” shall be “重要的事情先来” just means “important things first”,And “首先” is just “first”,
