“99% of the things around you don’t matter.” – Gary Vaynerchuk
If you really want to know whether something is worth your time or attention, take a minute to picture yourself attending to it, keep that part in mind.
Then now picture the long term effect of you attending to that matter. Has it added any value to your life and has it taken you a step closer to achieving your life long goal(s)? If it has, the better but if it hasn’t, why should you deal with it now?
That’s how you know if something is part of the 1% of things that actually matter in your life.
