According to Covey, that’s a big mistake. If you want to change your life, you first must act on the important but not urgent goals. While it’s tempting to open your inbox and answer those emails, I encourage you to relax, take a deep breathe, realize that those emails will still be there in an hour, and provided they are not a life-or-death situation, will not be any more urgent or important. As difficult as it may be to do, you must develop the resilience and strength to hold off on quadrant one. It is quadrant two that holds your opportunity for breakthroughs.
