June 19, 2009, Newsletter Issue #238: Urgent vs Important

Tip of the Week

What should you do when you have urgent work to do and your family want your time as well? Weigh up whatīs urgent against whatīs important. Is the urgent work important as well as urgent? What would happen if you delayed it for a couple of hours? A day? A week? On the other hand, the family are important, but can they hold off a bit on their request? Children live mostly in the moment, so they want things now and can make urgent demands on you in the moment. Can they be distracted onto something else for a while until you complete some or all of what you are doing? Can you strike a compromise? Look at all the options first before you decide.
