… does not mean you should.

One of the things I have recently started to appreciate is that measuring your life on too many scales makes it difficult for your go deep on what matters.

Reducing your metrics to a few things that matters, say your family life, your career and your spiritual life may be enough for you to go deeper on all of them.

Having multiple things that needs your attention, is a distraction to what truly matters.

We must realise, and act on the realisation, that if we try to focus on everything, we focus on nothing.

There are so many people working so hard and achieving so little.

“The art of management,” Grove wrote, “lies in the capacity to select from the many activities of seemingly comparable significance the one or two or three that provide leverage well beyond the others and concentrate on them.”

Just because you are capable of doing too many things, does not mean you should.
