One way we can keep things in perspective is to ask ourselves “To what extent will this matter tomorrow?” In a world changing faster than ever it seems, this simple enquiry may just keep us connected to what is really important.
Pondering the question ‘To what extent will this matter tomorrow?‘ and then listening attentively to our response ensures present efforts are fully focused on priorities.
Being guided by a structured programme, albeit with an element of flexibility incorporated into it most likely, helps us to reach our objectives.
“To what extent will this matter tomorrow?” For many, who operate according to the concept of giving proverbial oil to whatever door squeaks the loudest, the response is perhaps “It probably won’t.”
Doing this or that in a haphazard fashion invariably saps energy, rendering any output mechanical and listless at best.
That said, many things we are dealing with now will matter tomorrow. Though overused, the saying “We are building tomorrow today” holds true.
