have tomorrow to do our most important and valuable work. We fill our days with
frantic activity, bouncing from task to task, scrambling to make deadlines and
chase the next promotion. But by the end of each day we’re often left asking
ourselves “did the work I do today really matter?” We feel the ticking of the

road map to guide us.

will run out, so how we choose to spend today is significant. Each day that we
postpone difficult tasks and succumb to the clutter that chokes creativity,
discipline, and innovation results in a net deficit to the world, our
organizations, and our selves.
