Saving Seats

July 18, 2021

An auditorium only has so much space, so many seats.  So a venue sells tickets to ensure that everyone who pays for the show has a seat.  Many sites go further, reserving the first few rows for specific groups of people

Likewise, your mind only has so much space.  There's a limit to how much you can keep "top-of-mind".  And if you're not paying attention, it's easy to fill all the space with urgent tasks:

In the process, you may lose sight of the activities that are essential for growth and long-term success:
