The Things That Matter Most

What a Great Phrase. The Things That Matter the Most.
These things must never be at the mercy of the things that matter less and which matter the least.

Yet this is exactly the struggle we have today. We live in a world of contstant, continual Interruption and Distraction. One study says the typical "office worker" is interrupted 23 times every hour. Other studies suggest that senior management has the same, constant interruption and distraction.

Of course we are busy and we have multiple responsibilities that intrude. As the workplace has tightened up by
downsing - eliminating jobs...
they called it rightsizing - getting the right number of people in the workplace
which meant most of experienced supersizing of our jobs.

Too much to do, too many responsiblities, which meant interruption and distraction.
