Don’t get lost in the urgent

One attribute of organized, outcome-driven people is a focus on deadlines. This can paradoxically cause you to lose focus on what’s most important and meaningful, as most important things are not deadline-driven.

It’s rarely urgent to improve valuable, income-generating skills, create a backup contingency for your business tools, schedule an annual medical exam, or teach children critical thinking skills, values, or money management.

One solution is to schedule time on the calendar for the things that you recognize as important and meaningful. Many of these things are not urgent. Until they are, when it’s too late.
