After you are gone

You won’t read every book on your shelves. You won’t finish every project. You won’t cross every item on your To-do list.

So what are you going to focus on then?


If you knew your time was limited, what would you do with it?

I never asked myself this question before, but (spoiler alert) our time is limited. We won’t live forever. We won’t have time to focus on everything.

Knowing (or rather facing) that, what would you choose to spend your time on?

Of all those books, which are the ones you would really lament not having read on your deathbed? Of all your unfinished projects, which are the ones you would really wish you had tried harder?

Start there.

Don’t let the urgency of the day-to-day push back the important stuff.

Don’t let urgent kill important.
