    Daily Mindset

    **”I do not want to waste any time. And if you are not working on important things, you are wasting time.” – Dean Kamen**

    Imagine generalizing our lives into two categories:

    Urgent things, and important things.

    Urgent things are responding to text messages, emails, and putting out small fires throughout the day at work, home, and everywhere in between.

    Important things are starting the journey we’ve been putting off for 5 years.

    Time is absolutely escaping us. We know we have limited time here. But too often, our actions don’t fall in line with that understanding. We get distracted by the things that truly aren’t important. And at the end of a day, we may find ourselves questioning, “What the hell did I do today? What did I actually accomplish?”.

    Not a single person here hasn’t had that feeling. It’s good of us to recognize that we naturally default to the “urgent” things. They create the illusion of being more pressing, or worse, more “important”. But we know that’s not the case. Yet, we still allow ourselves to fall victim to the habit.

    The truth is that the above won’t change on its own. We have to work hard… very, very hard… to put the important things first. But if we can cultivate that ability, to put first things first, every day will have purpose.

    Let’s make that our aim.
