Steven Covey said, “Sharpen the saw.” My Boy Scout leader said, “A dull axe is a dangerous axe.” In this life we have two major categories of jobs:
1. Do the work that lies in front of you: Productivity
2. Maintain your ability to do the job tomorrow: Sustainability
So how could you sharpen your knives today? Would it be a nap? Stepping back and planning? Saying a prayer? Or is it literally sharpening your cooking knives?
