Quote-A-Day: Day 31

is never on your side. Better to , than against it.

Today was a busy day.  Too much to do, and not enough time to do it.  Isn't that always the case?  We can't beat time, and it has no intention of slowing down.

So, we've got to do one better.  We have to embrace the fact that we will never get everything done, and instead, understand that it is what we get done, and how we do it, that matters most.

There are a couple of things we can do, however, to be as efficient and effective as possible.  First, we can map out our time and keep to a schedule.  Second, we can collaborate and delegate, to cater to the strengths of others and distribute the load.  Finally, we must make sure that what we do truly counts, as a smaller number of accomplishments that mean a lot will always outweigh a tremendous number of accomplishments that mean little.

Here's the scoop: We only have a finite time on this Earth, and "To Do" lists never get shorter.  Why not focus on what is really important, so when these accomplishments take place, we can really be sure that we've made a difference.
