First Things First

If the first thing you do when you sit down to work is open up your email, you might spend your whole day reacting to what’s in your inbox.

Your energy gets depleted over the course of the day. If you let it get drained by the urgent, you might never get around to the important.

Figure out the most important thing to do today. Do it before you do anything else. Do it before you open your email or check your feeds.
