@kingsidharth There are more imp tasks that one can tackle at any point of time. If you are really able to do it all together — awesome! gn!

via Twitter for Mac in reply to kingsidharth

@kingsidharth Agree with ur pt on “subjectivity of importance” but doesn’t matter cause I think people *need* to put off imp tasks for later

via Twitter for Mac in reply to kingsidharth

@kingsidharth Basically what I want to say is that in most cases, importance does not change, urgency changes.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to kingsidharth

@kingsidharth While I wish it were not important, I know it is important. However I’d avoid it today. Maybe I will when it becomes urgent.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to kingsidharth

@vikramadhiman We’re talking about some recursive irony. Take a step back. Same thing applies to ‘people’. ‘People’ have to be made ‘right’.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to vikramadhiman

@kingsidharth Ah, looks like I bugged you already. Sorry!

via Twitter for Mac in reply to kingsidharth

@kingsidharth Also, seems you have not read the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. I love the way urgency vs importance is detailed there.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to kingsidharth

@kingsidharth Disagree, *importance* is independent of *interest* e.g. Exercising is uninteresting to me, does that mean it is unimportant.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to kingsidharth

@kingsidharth Or things that can be done only after completion of other things.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to kingsidharth

@kingsidharth Your definition of urgency is myopic. Do you never procrastinate tasks that need to be done but you have time to do it?

via Twitter for Mac in reply to kingsidharth

@vikramadhiman Interestingly if ‘People’ does not automatically imply ‘Right People’ to someone, he’s not the right guy in the first place.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to vikramadhiman

@kingsidharth Looks like you are mistaking urgency for importance.
