“Is this the very most important thing I should be doing with my time and resources right now?”
― Greg McKeown
Still the book that I'm digging into with both hands, Greg McKeown's Essentialism continues to reveal new treasures on each page.
Of course, we know that when we ask better questions, we get better answers- and the quality of our life is determined by the quality of our questions. This, I believe, is one of the best questions-
is this the most important thing I should be doing with my time and resources right now?
Notice the parts-
- Most Important Thing
- With my Time and Resources
- Right Now
Ahh! So many non-essential things fall into one of those categories. Yes, I should do this- but not right now. Yes, it's important and needs to be done right now- but not with my time and resources (it should be delegated.) Is it the most important thing? No.. even though I have the time and resources and it begs to be done right now.
What are you currently doing, my dear Creative Spiritual friends, that don't meet this criteria?
