What is important?

How do you decide what is important? It needs to be based on purpose, principles, and goals. Many people confuse urgent or efficiency with important.

If you are like most people, urgent things go to the top of the list. However, a potential problem with that approach is that urgent things may not be aligned to your purpose, principles, or goals.

Reading is not urgent but important, so it gets parked. Same applies to exercise – not urgent, but important – so it also gets parked. The trouble with postponing reading and exercise is that insight, productivity, and health get affected. All important to your well being and success.

What’s the solution? Get crystal clarity of purpose, principles, and goals. Then set your schedule from this paradigm followed by the execution of the same.

At the end of the day what will count is not how much you finish but what you finish!
