Rory Vaden´s Ted Talk puts me on fire at 06:47 where he introduces a new category of calculation how to make decisions. Next to urgency and importance the smartest category is significance.
How soon does it matter?
How much does it matter?
How long does it matter?
Significance refers to how long the task is going to matter.
Decisions and acts based on that criterium are life changers. If the answer is „the task won´t matter for really long“ you will probably say no to the task and with that you will gain spare time, energy or both. Maybe someone else will take care about the task.
After a little while he tells us how his mother delegated to find Rory a dad to Rory himself – which made him believe that anything in the world is delegible.
The story is fun to listen!
