You can’t.

No matter how long you work, how many books, blogs, podcasts, and seminars on time management you read and listen to, or what to-do app or technique you use you’ll never get it all done.

But getting “it” all done was never the point.

Doing work that matters, work that helps people, moves things forward, and makes the world better has always been the point.

Emails, meetings, and crossing things off the to-do list make us feel important and accomplished. Often they end up being more of a distraction than what they were intended to be: a means to help us focus on what matters most.

Instead of trying to get everything done (which you can never do), focus your time, energy, and attention on what really matters.

Let’s be done with trying to get everything done.
