"Most of us spend too much time on what is urgent
and not enough time on what is important. "
~ Stephen Covey, writer and educator
I am guilty of this at times. The tyranny of the urgent. While the urgent is most pressing, it is so important not to neglect the important in life. To do so we need to have dedicated priorities but also need to have discernment and flexibility to choose which urgent matters to give our time. The urgent will always be with us. The important may not always be there, especially if we deem it unimportant by the amount of time we allot to it. Choose wisely.
