When in doubt, grow.

There are so many options of what to do with our time.  Do we read?  Do busy work?  Make another todo list?  Get crackin?

If you’re asking yourself this question, it means that you’re hungry for effectiveness.  You want to make a big thing happen, however long it takes.  You want to make a dent in our culture.  You’re being proactive.

Now it’s time to put the first thing first. 

Half of being effective is knowing what ‘the thing’ is. For many of us, it’s simple. 

If you’re an entrepreneur, it’s as wide as this: solve people’s problems. 

If you don’t have a ‘first thing’ yet, then the objective automatically becomes growth. 

Grow.  Read.  Listen to podcasts.  Do what it takes to grow. 

You have a circle of influence, so how seriously you take your own growth matters.  ‘The thing’ truly becomes paramount. 

For now?  Grow.
