End of the year retrospection

End of the year always put one in a retrospection mood.  You think about the year passed, the what ifs, what could have etc. I was browsing some posts when I came across this.

Identify and focus on your top priorities – because if you don’t, wtf are you doing?

Is the top priority the top priority? What’s the single most important thing you need to be doing? If you don’t have an answer to this, you should drop everything and figure out what the answer is. Having an answer here forces clarity and focus. Not having an answer is dangerous – it guarantees that you’ll be working on unimportant things and wasting your precious time.

There will always be an endless stream of things to do. It’ll be tempting to do whatever is easiest, or most fun, or most familiar. But this is a trap that will screw you over in the long run. It’s better to make 5-10% progress on the most important thing than to finish lots of tasks that don’t actually move the needle.

Manage yourself like an important, valuable resource – because you are

It sounds a bit selfish, in this era of distractions, it is easy to forget about yourself.
