Don’t get distracted from the things that matter

One day on a walk, a squirrel was sitting on a rock eating a nut. I was sure as I got closer, it would run away. But it just sat there eating the nut. Until I got almost to it, when it ran away. It made the assessment to eat the nut as long as possible. And no distraction was going to stop it.

During the workday, it is so easy to get distracted by things that don’t matter instead of focusing on the things that do. How do you make sure you are focused on the things that matter?
