My weekly planner has little quotes that are supposed to be helpful and/or inspirational in some way. Which is why I rarely bother to read them. Until, that is, I opened up said planner today to write down my schedule for the upcoming week, and noticed the quote for last week. Most things which are urgent are not important, and most things which are important are not urgent. -Dwight D. Eishenhower
Wow. I don't know what planet HE was living on when he said that. Because damn, it's about the most useless thing ever quoted. I mean, just ask the next surgeon you meet and you'll learn otherwise. And ask me. I've gotten my first syllabus and schedule for one (that's one) of my classes this semester, and judging by what I'm in for during today's lecture, the shitstorm is about to begin.
