MESSAGE:

Most of us can probably work on avoiding “going through the motions” both personally and professionally by doing less of the “empty tasks” and breaking free from the daily “whirlwind”.

For me, I have recently started choosing two or three important goals to tackle the following day and sticking with them, even at the expense of smaller to-do items.

This clarity seems to be working pretty well so far by providing better results for what’s most important.
