I heard this phrase again recently and it reminded me of how important it is to prioritise our workloads and focus energy in the right places.  Here I am on Monday morning with a long "to do" list - where to start?  And how long should I spend on each project?   I'll still need to work through each task efficiently and make sure it's done well, but keeping this in mind will help me remember that once at that level, I can complete the task and move on. 

That way, I stand a much better chance of getting more done and freeing up some time later in the day for more creative thinking...
