Things that are urgent are always things which are put in front of you and you have to do something about that. Like an e-mail notification popping up while working on your computer, may demand your immediate attention and end up not being important. Urgent things demand your instant actions.
Things that are important are not always urgent. Like your relationship, your health or planning to buy a new house are important but not urgent. A single cough does not need you to go to the emergency. You don’t have to blow your savings to buy a house you saw while driving to work. It is important to have a house of your own but it doesn’t require your immediate attention without a proper planning.
The things that are important are not always urgent and the things that are urgent are not always important. Draw a list and know the difference of what is urgent and important in your life.
Remember: it’s urgent, it’s important.
