Better perspective equals better investment
Something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately: When dealing with finite amounts of time and resources, it’s vital to ensure that I take the time to get a big picture perspective before rolling up the sleeves and delving into grindstone type work.
This is because I can so easily grind away a chunk of hours on tasks that only yield minimal returns for the effort invested. When faced with a laundry list of tasks and demands, it seems like starting anywhere is better than nowhere. Isn’t it?
I’m not so sure. As a wise guy once said, if ‘everything is urgent, then nothing is‘. Not everything is equally important, and for me it brings much relief when I’m able to distinguish between falsely urgent tasks and truly important ones, in light of my long term goals and not just the demands of this current moment.
All that said, the video above is the result of freshly testing out my newly downloaded set of video tools. Footage was downloaded from a couple of stock footage sites and the soundtrack is an original composition.
