After few mess ups I learned a golden rule, I'll give it out for free..
Focus on what is important rather than what is urgent..
The urgent things might not be as important as the other postponed important things, but because you're always swamped with the urgent things (giving them false importance) you then forget about the important things till you finally find out it became a total mess.
You might divert from the path of achieving your dreams because of the urgent things, or stop perusing a certain goal because you're constantly busy.
it's ok to let go the urgent things sometimes, it's ok to fail, and sometimes destruction is required for a reconstruction.
Failure is one of the fastest paths to success.
