Prioritize the work that excites you
Minimize the things you dread and meetings you don't want to attend as much as possible: say “no”, delegate, and automate.
This leaves you to make room on your calendar for discussions that exhilarate you.
When what you spend your time on is congruent with your interests and values, progress feels conveniently close.
I wish I knew about the 80/20 rule much earlier.
