Think of time as if it were money. You want to maximize return on your investment. Invest at least 20% of your time on things that are important but not urgent.
Time is the most even playing field on the planet. We all have as much as there is and no one gets more or less. It’s true, that there is never enough time for everything, but always enough time for those activities that are most important to us.
We can’t manage time. We can only manage the activities we choose to put into our time.
We like to do what we’re good at and the average person spends a tremendous amount of time and energy avoiding activities they aren’t (or believe they aren’t) good at or don’t like to do.
Priorities flow from our principles, values and goals. Work towards understanding and scheduling priorities as opposed to prioritizing your schedule.
