This month, I’ve been delving into the qualities that define successful leaders, and one insight stands out: the ability to set priorities and get the job done fast is paramount.

Effective leaders excel in distinguishing between urgent and important tasks. Urgent tasks demand immediate attention and are typically resolved within minutes. Important tasks, however, require focused, uninterrupted work for at least 60 to 90 minutes.

Once a leader identifies the most important task, they apply single-minded focus, relentlessly pursuing completion until the job is done. This disciplined approach allows leaders to produce significantly more results—sometimes 2, 3, or even 5 times more than average workers—justifying why top leaders often earn exponentially more.

To become a better leader:

✅ Set Priorities: Clearly identify what is truly important versus what is merely urgent.

✅ Get It Done Fast: Allocate time for deep, focused work and tackle important tasks with unwavering commitment.

By mastering these skills, you’ll become a better leader, driving both personal and organizational success.
