This week we focus on what is important and how we manage it all.
MVP: We don’t manage time, we manage priorities
The concept of time management is a hoax designed to protect us from confronting the hard truths about how we allocate our time.
Time management suggests that we can do everything if we just organize.
Time management focuses on getting tasks done.
It pretends to emphasize priorities, but it doesn’t. Tasks are not priorities.
When we organize around priorities, as opposed to time, we increase our impact on people. We build, create value, and sow the seeds of future growth and success.
If we aren’t helping people grow, that tells us something about our priorities.
Do the important things first. The rest will sort itself out.
Todays intention: Think about recent opportunities you have had to help someone grow, and what you allowed to get in the way.
Our annual summer tradition is to share the most important things I’ve learned from other people throughout the month of July. This summer we have 20 lessons. You will receive one a day until we are done. If you feel particularly moved and want to share a reaction, please reply!
