Today’s urgent is not the same as tomorrow’s important

Getting to inbox zero, checking your social media status incessantly, sitting through another meeting, sending one more text seems important because of how urgent it feels.

Urgent is not the same as important.

The problem with short-term decision-making is that we leave a bigger hole to fill tomorrow.

If we don’t invest in tomorrow today, then when?

Yesterday would have been the best time to start, today is the next best thing.
