Here’s a simple, but practical advice: Instead of focusing on a number of things, or rather instead of trying to do everything, focus on a small number of important things you want to get done.
Don’t aim to be efficient, aim to be effective. First, do the things that matter, the things that have the biggest impact. Once you get the important bits done, you can focus on getting it done more efficiently, more productively.
Effectiveness is about control over your time and your impact.
Efficiency is about getting more things done. Effectiveness is about getting the right things done.
Limit yourself to an arbitrary but small number of things, forcing yourself to focus on the important stuff and eliminate all else.
Until Next Week
Focus on fewer, but more important things.
