A great quote from Robin Sharma - "Every time you say yes to something unimportant, you say no to something that is important". What a great way to put that if you don't prioritize right you will not get there. I need to be a little more brutal about my time management. Time is a finite resource and I'm spending mine as if I had a limitless supply. I will have to remember that quote to help me make the right decisions when I get pulled into a meeting or I make a phone call assuming I know what is important!!!
Knowing what is important means I have spent a decent amount of time understanding where I want to be and what it will take to get there. That's another one that is no picnic.
