Well, this is the Warren Buffett two lists story, which you should read, remember and learn the lesson in it!
He knew that their employees often helps to reveal their priorities and he have them focus in career. One day on his personal pilot he gave him a drill in three steps, to help him understand which are his true priorities:
In the first step he told him to write down 25 goals that he wants to achieve in his career. So the pilot sat and wrote.
In the second step, he told him to conclude the 5 goals that are most important from that list. So the pilot has completed the 5 most important goals.
In the third step he had two lists, one list with the most important goals and another with the remaining 20 of the first 25. The pilot said he will immediately begin working to fulfill 5 targets.
Then Buffett asked him: “And what would you do with the remaining 20?” The pilot replied: “Those 5 goals are most important, the other 20 are also important, so I will work on them when I can and when I have time”.
Then Buffett told him that he everything misunderstood. That list of 20 things that remain becomes a list of things that should be avoided at all costs. No matter what, do not do things of the second list until they have met the first.
