First Things First

1t1When a motorist drove into a service station and asked for ten gallons of gas, three station attendants immediately sprang into action.

One began wiping off the windshield, another checked the tires, a third put water in the radiator. When they were through, the motorist paid his bill and drove off.

A few minutes later, he returned with a worried look on his face. “Did any of you put gas in my car?”, he asked.

The three attendants went into a huddle – then admitted meekly that nobody had.

Anything less than a conscious commitment to the important is an unconscious commitment to the unimportant.

According to Lee Iacocca “The discipline of writing something down is the first step towards making it happen…it forces you to get down to specifics.”

Beloved, as you step out today, remember that some important things are not urgent and that some urgent things are not important.

Think deeply about this. Engrave it into your heart and you will never have a wasted day again. Never.

You will succeed.
