Every time you say no to spending your time one way, you’re saying yes to spending it a different way.
I couldn’t agree more. One of my favorite quotes about time management is from Robert Louis Stevenson: “Perpetual devotion to what a man calls his business, is only to be sustained by perpetual neglect of many other things.”
It’s why I started limiting my time spent doing email rather than continually aiming for an empty inbox.
