Your greatest danger is letting the urgent things crowd out the important. (Charles E. Hummel, former college president)
Hummel addresses a problem that most busy people face almost on a daily basis. There are the phone calls or emails that demand an immediate answer. There’s the unexpected interruption of a visit at your desk. It is often difficult—but always necessary—to set up priorities. Establish in advance what simply MUST be done today and determine to get that done first.
Those who are wise will find a time and a way to do what is right. (Ecclesiastes 8:5)
