99% of things don’t matter in the grand scheme of things. Keeping this in mind and in perspective it is essential to spend your time, energy, effort and resources on things that do matter. Focus on what matters and what is important, not on those who are loud and in desperate need of attention or on responsibilities which don’t really move the ball forward. Enjoy life, enjoy and love today as that is what you have. Tomorrow, on the other hand, is not guaranteed and as such never take what you do have for granted.
In the end, health of your family and friends certainly outranks that project scope change at work, doesn’t it? Happy new year to you and your family and may 2017 be the best year to date! I wish you all the best.
