When you have urgent and important work, do it now, such as health & family problems, deadlines of any project, any crisis. If something is important but not urgent such as planning, relationship, learning the skills and courses schedule it.

If something is urgent and not important should be avoided such as notifications of apps and messages, email checking, and unnecessary interruption of any calls and meetings. Schedule for later whenever you have free time. Things that are not urgent and important should be deleted like unproductive time spent on tv, unnecessary shopping, browsing, and gossiping, avoid wasting your time on it. If you have more time for productive things, You can figure out every situation.

We can not control all things. It is never been in our control. Things change consistently and happened sometimes in our favor and sometimes not, this is life. We should focus on the things that we can control, and for rest we should accept it as life is. You will be burned out if you will try to control all the things.

Do your best whatever you can control and right for you. Do not waste your time and energy thinking negative things, always look forward and what potential opportunities you can find out.
