When everything feels urgent and important, everything seems equal. We become active and busy, but this doesn’t actually move us any closer to success. Activity is often unrelated to productivity, and busyness rarely takes care of business.
You can become successful with less discipline than you think, for one simple reason: success is about doing the right thing, not about doing everything right.
Maybe a collection of bland truisms, but…it’s amazing how enticing the pull of doing urgent but unimportant things can be.
