More Important Than Another

What’s actionable? What makes one thing a priority over another; is it just the due date or the impact it may have on other people?

“The Principle of Priority states (a) you must know the difference between what is urgent and what is important, and (b) you must do what’s important first.” – Steven Pressfield

Important is what people care about most. But if everything is important, than nothing has intrinsic value. We can’t possibly do it all with 100% effort and concentration. The brain is a motor that runs out of gas. We can only do our best when we can focus on the task at hand.

There are simply too many tasks involved in daily life. The tasks at work, at home, and in our social lives. Life itself is one big Herculean task.

So what is one important task that you’re taking action against today?
