Schedule your priorities, don’t prioritize your schedule.
There's just too much to do. There will always be lots of opportunities, fun events going on and menial tasks to do. There's always another room to vacuum, another email to send, another networking event to attend. But we need to be doing those things that are important and ignore the rest.
We need to consciously avoid spending time on things that aren’t furthering our goals.
We all complain about not enough time, not enough energy and too much to do. Well the solution is simple. Do less.
That doesn’t mean you stop being as effective, that just means you channel the limited amount of time and energy you have into the most important things. You can still be just as effective in a smaller range of activities and projects.
