Don’t prioritize in the moment value

From Cal Newport

A key idea in attention capital theory is that knowledge work organizations implicitly prioritize convenience over value production. It makes everyones’ life easier in the moment if you’re quick to reply to email, willing to hop on a call, attend one more planning meeting and join that internal committee.

I freely admit that I almost never go for convenience over value. This is why I only do calls on Friday and only worry about doing email on Friday.

The whole rest of the week is for writing and providing value to my clients.

If you need help building that schedule and that priority then BootCamp is open. I’m helping others get their stuff together.
