Urgent and Important

A ringing phone is urgent in the sense that you’ll miss the call if you don’t answer.  But that doesn’t make it important. Planting a seed (physically or metaphorically) will never be urgent, but it’s a necessity for future growth.

While some of us rush from one emergency to the next, successful athletes, artists, businesspeople, and parents devote time to this category: important but not urgent.
