Doing the Right Part

I wouldn’t normally suggest this, but you should skip the first part of the next sentence.

There are things I have to do that need to get done, and there are things I need to do that have to get done.

While at first glance these seem exactly the same, they’re not.

It’s when you get through the entire sentence — both by reading it and by acting on it — that you realize the second part is what fulfills you.

The first part just fills you — it keeps you from getting to the second part.

So skip the first part and go straight to the second part from now on. Everything you touch will be better for it.
