Emails are often the most time-consuming work for every professional, finding the important conversation amidst the noise is a real challenge. I was surprised to find that I was subscribed to more than 900+ mailing list.Think about the amount of noise my inbox would generate. HUGE!
Watch the Video Interview of Mark Parker, CEO of Nike, Where he says an advice he got from Steve Jobs on Focus.
People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying “no” to 1,000 things.
