John Spence, author of the book Awesomely Simple, recently did an interview on the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast and made a great observation that I thought was worth repeating. John commented on the topic of staying on top of everything,
The important thing when you are juggling is to know which balls are made of glass.
You need to know what can’t be dropped and what can. Drop the right one and it bounces for you to grab when you have a free hand. Drop the wrong one and it shatters all over the place destroying any momentum you had.
As we wind down 2010, do you know what you need to hold on to and what you can afford to drop till later?
