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.

The girl from Ipanema

When Astrud Gilberto sings this song it conjures up vivid images of Rio and the Copacabana more than any other version.

It’s a timeless classic and especially when she’s singing in Brazilian it’s truly unique. Despite its many covers this is the version that people love and remember.

With the things that matter to us, we need to be the stand out classic that will make an impact, that will bring our message to life and not some cover that people can take or leave.
