Discipline 1: Focus on the Wildly Important
The more you try to do, the less you actually accomplish. This is a stark, inescapable principle we all live with. Somewhere along the way, most leaders forget this. Why? Because most intelligent, ambitious people don’t want to do less, especially if it means saying no to good ideas. They’re wired to do more, but there are always more good ideas than there is capacity to execute.
