Well helloooo cyberspace!
‘Prioritise – learn to differentiate between urgent and just important’
Do I really need to go on?
Ok, you asked for it.
So the other day I was having one of those frantic moments when everything happens at the same time and you go into headless chicken mode:
- The postman knocked the door
- Breakfast had just been put down
- Owner’s shoes were being put on
- Ear needed scratching
- Instinct told me I needed to pay a visit
Well all hell broke out as I tried to do everything at once… I put a paw full of food in my ear, and then darted towards the shoes, narrowly missing one of them as it was swiped in my direction.
I then swerved expertly like ‘The Stig’ into the hall just as the door was answered and promptly used the postman in a way no postman deserves to be used.
I then gave the most puppy dog eyes I have ever had to adopt : (
So I realise the difference between urgent and important is key and I now have a simple question I ask myself :
What’s the best use of my time right now?
It’s working so far and I am pleased to say I haven’t needed to grovel anywhere near as badly since I’ve used this ethos.
Keep on learning!
