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.

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.
