The most important work

Most people spend their days responding to ‘urgent’ tasks such as phone calls, emails, social media notifications, and chatting.

However, the work that is most likely to propel us towards our goals in life we define as not ‘urgent’ and as it is more time consuming, challenging and requires time to focus on, we carry on with the low hanging fruit of so-called ‘urgent’ tasks as we feel busy and productive.

We are always in responsive mode instead of focused mode and it takes bravery and patience to step away from the tasks to do the work that really matters and step off the ‘busy’ treadmill.
