Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, for they could not be given you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps, then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer. Rainer Marie Rilke

Interesting perspective. Don't manage time, design it.

"...you can be more thoughtful about which ones you tackle: Will my participation in a meeting really have the greatest impact on my company? Is there something else I can work on that will lead to greater results? Are they tasks I can delegate to others or just put off until later?

Your four-quadrant system will only work if you can get okay with saying "no" because it defines a hierarchy of value. You won't just be refusing to participate or procrastinating because you dislike a certain task—you'll do that only because you know your time is better spent elsewhere. So respect the time you schedule for yourself: If you’re working on a report, give yourself permission to not respond immediately to every email. No, you won't be "managing" your inbox—but by design.

Do The Stuff You Actually Love
It’s easy to get bogged down by the sheer volume of things to do and imagine that you just don't have enough time to spend doing the parts of your job you genuinely like. But that can quickly become a self-fulfilling prophecy if you're just focused on time management.

If you’re mentally exhausted, you’ll work less efficiently, so make sure you take time every day to recharge and enjoy your work. Pull from that quadrant that energizes you. Give yourself permission to prioritize the things you actually love..."

My washer is fixed. +chadwick major with General Repair was efficient and personable. He even took a few minutes to play with my puppy! Highly recommended.

Rabbi Harold Kushner was in Minneapolis a couple of months ago. His speech was recorded and is available for your listening pleasure on MPR. Enjoy!
