Protect Your Time

Brad Feld (of Foundry Group and TechStars fame) recently wrote a great article on “The Simple Change That’s Completely Transformed How I Get Things Done”: It’s incredibly easy to fill your day with meetings and busy work — and end up with the unfulfilling knowledge that you didn’t get the important work done.

I am busy as charged. I love meeting people, hear their stories and help them. And it can turn into an incredible drag onto my time.

And yet: It’s so incredibly important to figure out what’s important and relentlessly focus on doing the things which matter (and ruthlessly ignore anything else).

As someone once said to me: Make the main thing the main thing.
