If we are like most people today, we are overwhelmed with too much to do and too little time. As we struggle to catch up, new tasks and responsibilities keep rolling in, like the tides. Because of this, we will never be able to do everything we have to do. We will never catch up. We will always be behind in some of our tasks and responsibilities, and probably in many of them.
For this reason, and perhaps more than ever before, our ability to select our most important task at each moment, and then to get started on that task and to get it done quickly and well, will probably have more impact on our success than any other quality or skill we can develop.
An person who develops the habit of setting clear priorities and getting important tasks completed quickly will run circles around a genius who talks a lot and makes wonderful plans but who gets very little done.
