Carve out


All the little things. All the little things. This little thing. That little thing. More and more little things. All the little things that eat up time and attention. All the little things that need doing but, in reality, do nothing of any substance. All the little things that get in the way of dealing with the bit things, or even working out what the big things are. All the little things.

There are always little things. There will always be little things. You will always need to do little things. 

Let’s assume your role is to do more than keep all the little things from crashing down. Let’s assume it’s also about defining and delivering big things. How do you do that? How do you do the little things and the big things.

With discipline over time and effort.

Skippy strategy: Carve out and respect time for the big things.
