Treating people as equals and creating equal opportunity despite gender, race, etc. is an admirable version of equality. But that’s as far as it goes.
Treating all projects, endeavors, and hours of the day with equal importance is a flaw that un-successful, overwhelmed, stressed-out people share. Those who have achieved mastery, fulfillment and are in control of their lives distinguish and prioritize the critical, few, most significant things, from the trivial and unlimited choices for allocating their time and attention.
Focus on what’s most meaningful and significant, and give that the UNEQUAL attention it deserves.
