Emergent priorities

One way to measure the success of a day is to look at the priorities you started with and see how you did relative to them.

The other is to only do so in relation to a melded list of priorities that emerged over the course of the day.

The challenge with prioritization isn’t in sticking with a list that we came up with at one point of time. It is the relentless focus on identifying what “the main thing” is at any given moment and creating the space to keep the main thing the main thing.
